J
unior quarterback Ryker Fyfe served as the top backup to Tommy Armstrong Jr. in 2014. The 6-2, 210-pound Fyfe will continue to compete for playing time at quarterback this fall. Armstrong emerged from spring practice as the anticipated starter, however the competition for the top backup role continues with Fyfe a big part of that battle.

The Grand Island, Neb., native has added more than 30 pounds of muscle during his time in the program. Fyfe has shown the ability to lead the offense during his limited snaps and possesses a strong arm and the mobility to be a running threat.

2014 (Sophomore)
Fyfe played in seven games, with most of his action late in games. He did see key snaps at Michigan State and Iowa when Armstrong was temporarily sidelined. Fyfe rushed for 47 yards on seven carries, while completing 4-of-10 passes for 40 yards and a touchdown.

Fyfe rushed four times for a season-high 29 yards against Florida Atlantic. Against Fresno State, he completed 2-of-3 passes for 22 yards, including a 10-yard touchdown pass to Christian Bailey. Fyfe was 1-of-2 passing at Michigan State and led NU to a touchdown.

2013 (Redshirt Freshman)
Fyfe saw action in NU’s win over South Dakota State, completing his only pass attempt for five yards and running for three yards.

2012 (Redshirt)
Fyfe redshirted in 2012 and worked on the NU scout team.

Before Nebraska (Grand Island HS)
Fyfe guided one of the most potent offenses in Nebraska as a senior, leading Grand Island to nearly 400 yards of offense and 40 points per game. He was a first-team Omaha World-Herald All-Nebraska pick, and was the quarterback and honorary captain of the Lincoln Journal Star’s Super State team. Fyfe threw for 1,921 yards and 20 touchdowns as a senior, while running for 746 yards and 14 scores, averaging 6.4 yards per carry.

As a junior, Fyfe finished with 1,492 passing yards and 14 touchdowns. Fyfe, who also played basketball and baseball, started at quarterback for the North team in the 2012 Nebraska Shrine Bowl. Fyfe chose to walk on at Nebraska over a scholarship offer from Nebraska-Kearney.

Personal
The son of Montie and Kim Fyfe, Ryker was born on Nov. 20, 1993. He is a sociology major and has volunteered time with team hospital visits and Uplifting Athletes. He was the recipient of a 2013 Nebraska Student-Athlete HERO Leadership Award and a member of the 2013 Brook Berringer Citizenship Team.
