Through his six-year career at Nebraska, Jason Schwab overcame numerous obstacles, including two major surgeries, to climb from walk-on status into a starting role.  Earning a scholarship before the 1997 season, Schwab missed all of the 1999 season after suffering a torn ACL and MCL in his right knee before the start of fall camp.  He rehabbed from his injury in hopes of a sixth season for the Huskers.  In January of 2000, the NCAA ruled in favor of Schwab, who was chosen by his teammates as one of three offensive captains in 2000.  He finished his career with 178 pancakes.

One of the hardest workers in the weight room, Schwab was a finalist for Lifter of the Year in 1998 and 2000.  Over his career at Nebraska, Schwab consisently performed the squat better than anyone on the team (best of 690 pounds).  From 1997 to 1999, Schwab improved his Performance Index nearly 1,000 points to a personal-best 2,245.  He lowered his 10-yard dash more than 0.2 seconds and his 40 time by 0.5.  He also posted a 4.34 pro-agility run time.
