Trent Ortmeier is part of a strong group of in-state line prospects in Nebraska's 2014 walk-on class. The 6-6, 270-pound Ortmeier was a standout on both lines for Coach Dave Ridder at West Point Central Catholic. Ortmeier helped pave the way for a powerful offensive attack, while disrupting opposing offenses from his defensive line spot. Ortmeier's play as a senior helped the Bluejays to an 8-2 record and a trip to the second round of the Class D-1 state playoffs. Ortmeier helped Guardian Angels to a 7-2 record as a junior and was a part of teams that advanced to the state finals in both 2010 and 2011. As a senior, Ortmeier earned first-team Class D-1 all-state honors as an offensive lineman from both the Omaha World-Herald and the Lincoln Journal Star. He is the son of Steve and Mary Ortmeier, and was born on March 22, 1996.
