» Nebraska Scholar-Athlete Honor Roll (Fall 2014)
Sophomore Creighton Koley made a solid first impression with the first-year Husker coachign staff in 2015. The 6-0, 190-pound Koley showed the ability to compete for playing time at safety, while also being a candidate for work on the Huskers' special teams. Koley joined the Nebraska program as a walk-on from Skutt Catholic High School in Omaha, where he was a two-way standout.
2015 (Redshirt Freshman)
Koley had a strong spring camp capped by making eight tackles and intercepting a pass in the spring game. He went on to add depth at safety, but did not play in a game.
Koley redshirted and worked on the scout team in his first year in the program.
Before Nebraska (Skutt Catholic HS)
Koley was a standout on both sides of the ball for Coach Matt Turman, a former Husker quarterback. Koley’s play helped Skutt Catholic to a 12-1 record and a Class B state championship in 2013. Koley was the honorary captain of the Huskerland Class B all-state defense, and was a first-team Class B all-state defender by the Associated Press and the Omaha World-Herald. He was named to the Lincoln Journal Star’s first-team Class B all-state offense as an athlete.
Koley was also a standout for the Skyhawks during his junior season, when Skutt posted a 9-2 record and advanced to the second round of the Class B playoffs. Koley earned All-Omaha area honorable-mention recognition from the World-Herald as a junior.
