- Nebraska Scholar-Athlete Honor Roll (Fall 2011, 2012)
Lincoln native Will Sailors will look to add depth for the Huskers on a veteran offensive line in 2012. The 6-3, 270-pound Sailors joined the Huskers as a walk-on from Lincoln Northeast High School and worked on the Husker scout team during a redshirt season in 2011. Sailors missed part of spring ball because of injury, and is expected to start fall practice at offensive guard.
Sailors redshirted in his first season in the progam.
Before Nebraska (Lincoln Northeast HS)
Sailors helped Lincoln Northeast High School to a 7-4 record and a trip to the Class A state quarterfinals in 2010. Sailors lined up at offensive tackle for Coach Justin Smith and the Rockets. For his efforts, Sailors was a second-team Super-State selection by the Lincoln Journal Star and a first-team Class A all-state pick by both the Journal Star and the Omaha World-Herald. Sailors had drawn interest from Northwest Missouri State.
Will is the son of Scott and Mary Sailors and was born on Sept. 3, 1992. He has not declared a major, but earned spots on the Nebraska Scholar-Athlete Honor Roll in the fall of 2011 and 2012. He took part in several community outreach efforts, including Husker Hotline, Husker Heroes and local hospital visits.
