2017 (Season Outlook)
As only one of two seniors on the 2017 squad, Coleman Tokar will be looked to as a leader for the Huskers. Tokar posted a career-best score on floor (14.80) in his only appearance for Nebraska as a junior and will compete for a spot on floor, still rings, vault, parallel bars and high bar in 2017.

Outside of competition, Tokar is expected to continue making his mark in the classroom. He’s a three-time member of the Nebraska Scholar-Athlete Honor Roll and a two-time member of the Tom Osborne Citizenship Team.

2016 (Junior)
Tokar provided depth in the floor and high bar lineups, but only competed once for the Huskers as a junior. The Minneapolis, Minn., native posted a career-high score on floor (14.80) in his hometown when the team competed against Minnesota on Jan. 30.

Tokar was a difference maker in the classroom, earning a spot on the Nebraska-Scholar Athlete Honor Roll for the fifth time in fall 2015.

In the community, Tokar was an active volunteer and earned a spot on the Tom Osborne Citizenship Team in 2016.

Tokar also was one of two Husker men’s gymnasts to participate in the Nebraska Life Skills Service Trip to the Dominican Republic in May 2016.

2015 (Sophomore)
Tokar saw significant action as a sophomore, playing some important roles across several events for the Huskers in 2015. Tokar consistently contributed routines on floor and high bar throughout the season, while also filling in some vital spots on rings and vault.

Tokar competed in every regular-season meet for NU and in the postseason. On floor, he earned a season-best 14.75 at Illinois March 15. He also grabbed career highs on rings (13.85) and high bar (14.00) against Minnesota and UIC on Feb. 7.

In the classroom, Tokar earned spots on the Nebraska Scholar-Athlete Honor Roll for the fall and spring semesters of 2014-15.

2014 (Freshman)   
Tokar competed in two regular-season meets as a redshirt freshman before sustaining a season-ending injury. Tokar set personal bests during his two-meet stretch, including a 14.30 at the Huskers’ home opener at the Devaney Center on Jan. 25, and a 14.35 on vault at the Rocky Mountain Open.

In the classroom, he added a spot on the Nebraska Scholar-Athlete Honor Roll in the spring of 2014.

2013 (Redshirt)   
Tokar redshirted in his first season at Nebraska, while working to make the adjustment to collegiate gymnastics. He also worked diligently on improving his skills on pommel horse, parallel bars and vault.

He earned a spot on the Nebraska Scholar-Athlete Honor Roll in the fall of 2012.

Before Nebraska   
Tokar trained with the North Shore Gymnastics Association under the direction of head coach Dale Bulivant. Tokar competed at Junior Olympic Nationals, as well as on his regional team. He graduated from Orono High School in 2012.

Coleman is the son of Rick and Nancy Tokar. Coleman was born on April 30, 1994 in Minneapolis, Minn. He has one brother, Cooper. Coleman is majoring in mathematics education and is a six-time member of the Nebraska Scholar-Athlete Honor Roll.

Outside of gymnastics, Tokar enjoys skiing, playing the guitar, piano and French horn. He chose Nebraska over Minnesota.
