2008 (Senior)
Clayton Sievers was a versatile performer throughout his Nebraska career and during his senior season he was a key member of a rejuvenated Husker defense. Sievers served as the top backup at defensive end for nearly the entire season and his high level of play was rewarded with a Blackshirt near season’s end.

Sievers played in all 13 games of the 2008 season and helped the Nebraska defense finish second in the Big 12 in total defense, and nearly triple its sack total from the 2007 season. He finished the season with 14 total tackles, including three tackles for loss and his first career sack against Iowa State. He also forced a fumble against the Cyclones and added tackles for loss against Oklahoma and Kansas. Sievers also saw action on Nebraska’s punt and PAT units. In the classroom, Sievers earned first-team academic All-Big 12 honors as a senior.

2007 (Junior)
Sievers played in 11 games, missing only the Missouri contest, and served as Turner’s top backup at open end. Sievers finished the season with seven total tackles, including a season-high three stops against Texas A&M. He made two tackles against Iowa State and added single stops against Kansas State and Nevada, when he also added a hurry. He also served on several Nebraska special teams units.

2006 (Sophomore)
Sievers appeared in nine games while serving as the top reserve at SAM linebacker behind Stewart Bradley. Sievers recorded one assisted tackle during NU’s Big 12 North Division-clinching win over Texas A&M. He was a part of NU’s goal-line defensive unit, and was a regular on Nebraska’s punt, punt block and PAT/field goal units.

2005 (Redshirt Freshman)
Sievers played in all 12 games as a reserve tight end, including starts against Pittsburgh, Missouri and Oklahoma. Sievers established a career high with two receptions for 12 yards in his first career game in the opener against Maine. He added single receptions against Wake Forest, Pitt, Iowa State and Oklahoma. His catch against the Sooners was a season-long 11-yard grab. Sievers added one tackle, and was a member of NU’s kickoff return team.

2004 (Redshirt)
Sievers redshirted in his first season with the Huskers.

Before Nebraska (Elkhorn HS)
A versatile two-way performer for Coach Mark Wortmann at Elkhorn, Sievers starred at outside linebacker, defensive end and tight end in 2003. He finished his senior year with 70 tackles, including seven sacks. He played fullback on offense and averaged more than five yards per carry. His performance helped the Antlers to a 6-4 record in 2003. Sievers made 65 tackles and five sacks as a junior, and played tight end for the Antler offense, helping Elkhorn reach the Class B quarterfinals in 2002.

Sievers was a second-team Super-State selection as a defensive lineman by the Lincoln Journal Star, and a second-team All-Nebraska pick as a defender by the Omaha World-Herald. He earned first-team Class B all-state honors from both publications. Sievers, who began his prep career at Valley High School, chose Nebraska over Iowa, Iowa State, Colorado State and Wyoming.
