2009 Outlook
Mason Wald was one of just three true freshmen to see extensive action in 2008. The hard-hitting safety played in all 13 games, primarily as a member of Nebraska’s special teams units. With a year in the Husker program under his belt, Wald will look to battle for playing time in the secondary during spring practice.

2008 (Freshman)
Wald was a regular on the Huskers’ punt return and kickoff coverage units. His play helped NU rank in the top 25 nationally in punt returns. Wald finished with six tackles, including four solo stops. Wald recorded the first tackle of his career at home against Virginia Tech, while posting a career-high two tackles against Kansas. He had five of his six tackles in the final five games of the season.

Before Nebraska (Vestavia Hill HS)
Mason Wald was the final addition to NU’s signing class and brings his reputation as a hard-hitting safety to Nebraska. The 5-11, 205-pound Wald is a fearless hitter who helped Vestavia Hills High in Birmingham to back-to-back appearances in the Alabama 6A state semifinals.

Wald is Nebraska’s first signee from Alabama since Brett Byford in 2003.

Wald’s play in 2007 helped Vestavia Hills and Coach Buddy Anderson to an 11-3 record, including a victory over rival and national powerhouse Hoover High in the state quarterfinals, when Wald had six tackles and two interceptions. On the season, Wald finished with seven interceptions and more than 100 tackles. For his outstanding play in 2007, Wald was a first-team Class 6A all-state pick by the Alabama Sports Writers Association and the Birmingham News named him a member of its Super All-Metro team.

Wald also played a key role during his junior season, helping his team reach the state semifinals.

Personal
Wald is the son of Michael and Suzanne Wald and was born on Nov. 2, 1989.
