» Nebraska Scholar-Athlete Honor Roll (Fall, 2014)
Sophomore Dylan Owen will head into the 2016 season hoping to contend for playing time at defensive end. Senior Ross Dzuris and sophomore Freedom Akinmoladun have extensive game experience, but the opportunity to build depth behind that duo is wide open. The 6-5, 240-pound Owen joined Nebraska as a walk-on from New York in 2014.
2015 (Redshirt Freshman)
Owen added depth at defensive end, but did not play in a game.
Owen redshirted and worked on the scout team in his first year at Nebraska.
Before Nebraska (Somers HS/Bridgton Academy)
Owen joined the Huskers after spending the 2013 season at Bridgton Academy in Maine. Owen is originally from Westchester, N.Y., and graduated from Somers High School in Lincolndale, N.Y. As a senior at Somers High, Owen made 61 tackles, including 45 solo stops, while adding three sacks and a pass breakup. His play helped Somers to a 10-1 record, before losing in the quarterfinals of the state playoffs. As a senior at Somers, Owen earned New York Class A All-state first-team honors on defense, and he was also named to the MSG Varsity All-Section 1 first-team defensive unit.
The son of Richard and Charlyse Owen, Dylan was born on Dec. 18, 1995. He is related to former Nebraska offensive lineman Jerry Minnick, who earned All-America honors in 1952. Owen is majoring in criminology and criminal justice, and earned a spot on the Fall 2014 Nebraska Scholar-Athlete Honor Roll. He has volunteered his time with Uplifting Athletes and NU’s annual Thanksgiving hospital visit.
