Redshirt freshman Creighton Koley made a strong impression during his first spring under the new Nebraska coaching staff. The 6-0, 180-pound Koley will look to contend for playing time in the secondary at safety, while also bidding for action on Nebraska’s special teams. Koley capped a strong spring with an excellent spring game that included eight tackles and an interception.
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.
The son of Tom and Kathy Koley, Creighton was born on Sept. 11, 1995. He is majoring in business administration and was named to the Nebraska Scholar-Athlete Honor Roll in the fall 2014 semester. Koley has assisted in community outreach efforts with Uplifting Athletes and local hospital visits.
