- 2003 Big 12 Commissioner’s Fall Academic Honor Roll
Sophomore Eric Lueshen has served as a reserve place-kicker the past two seasons, but after a strong performance in spring practice finds himself in the mix for kicking duty this fall. Nebraska graduated senior Sandro DeAngelis in 2004, while David Dyches will return for his junior season after starting parts of the past two seasons. Lueshen is accomplished off the field, being named to the Big 12 Commissioner's Honor Roll three times at Nebraska. He was also named to the 2005 Brook Berringer Citizenship Team for his community outreach work.
2004 (Redshirt Freshman)
Lueshen was a backup to Dyches and DeAngelis, but did not play in a game.
A walk-on, Lueshen redshirted in his first season at Nebraska.

He also lettered four times in track and field, and claimed a medal in the high jump at the 2003 Class B state track meet. He was an honor roll student and a member of the National Honor Society.
