2008 (Senior)
Hunter Teafatiller was a contributor at tight end and on special teams throughout his Husker career, then moved into a role as a fullback as a senior. After lining up exclusively at tight end for his first three seasons, Teafatiller split time between the two positions in 2008.

Teafatiller played in 12 games in 2008, drawing starts against San Jose State and Missouri. He caught three passes for 27 yards, with all of the catches against New Mexico State, including a season-long 15-yard catch. He also netted five tackles on special teams, including three in the season finale against Colorado. He also continued in his role on kickoff returns and had a 16-yard return against Kansas.

2007 (Junior)
Teafatiller played in each of the season’s final 11 games, as part of a deep group of tight ends. He finished the year with four receptions for 34 yards, including a career-high three catches for 21 yards in a road victory at Wake Forest. Teafatiller saw extensive action throughout the remainder of the year, but his only other reception was a 13-yarder at Kansas. He also contributed on special teams and had four kickoff returns for 37 yards.

2006 (Sophomore)
Teafatiller played in all 14 games with starts against Texas and Missouri, when NU lined up with three tight ends. He caught only five passes for 78 yards, but four of those receptions resulted in touchdowns. He also continued to play a key role on the Huskers’ special teams units. He opened the season with his first career catch for a score on a 29-yard reception against Louisiana Tech.

Following a five-game stretch without a catch, Teafatiller scored the Huskers’ first touchdown against Kansas State on a 17-yard pass from place-kicker Jake Wesch on a fake field-goal attempt. Teafatiller found the end zone once again two weeks later against Missouri with another 17-yard reception. He caught his fourth pass of the year against Colorado, then accounted for NU’s lone score in the Big 12 title game against Oklahoma, with a 14-yard catch from Zac Taylor in the second quarter.

2005 (Freshman)
One of a school-record 13 true freshmen to see action, Teafatiller played in each of the final seven games on the Huskers’ punt return unit after sitting out the first half of the year. He also saw action on NU’s kickoff return unit.

Before Nebraska (San Joaquin Memorial HS)
Teafatiller played primarily tight end and defensive end for Coach Anthony Ghoston at San Joaquin Memorial. Teafatiller helped his team to the 2004 Valley championship. In the process, Teafatiller earned NYL Defensive Player-of-the-Year honors, and was also a first-team NYL selection at tight end and defensive end.
