Nebraska's 108 All-Americans

By NU Athletic Communications

One of the most storied wrestling programs in the nation, Nebraska has produced 108 All-Americans in over 100 years of wrestling in Lincoln. The Huskers have also earned an impressive 86 honors since 1990, thanks in part to Bryan Snyder and James Green, the only two wrestlers in Husker history to capture All-America honors on four occasions.

Fourteen Huskers have earned All-American honors three times while 13 NU grapplers are two-time honorees. Five times a Husker has claimed the Manuel Gorrarian Award at the NCAA Championships, which is awarded to the wrestler who records the most pins in the least amount of time at the event. Below are Nebraska's 108 All-American awards won, including the year and weight the wrestler claimed the honor.

National champions are in bold.
