2019 Season Outlook
Senior Jeramiah Stovall has been one of Nebraska’s top special teams’ performers each of the past two seasons, and should again be a leader on those units in 2019. A walk-on from Omaha Creighton Prep, Stovall has excelled on both kickoff and punt coverage and was named Nebraska’s Special Teams Player of the Year in 2018. The 5-11, 200-pound Stovall should also provide depth at cornerback for the Huskers in 2019.
Stovall was a criminology and criminal justice major and earned his bachelor’s degree in May. He will play his senior season as a graduate student in 2019.
Stovall was Nebraska’s Special Teams Player of the Year as a junior in 2018. Stovall was a member of Nebraska’s kickoff coverage in eight of the season’s final 10 games, totaling eight tackles on that unit. He tied for the team lead with eight special teams tackles and eight tackles on kickoff coverage. Stovall had single tackles on kickoff coverage at Northwestern and Ohio State, and he had two tackles on kickoff coverage against Wisconsin, Minnesota and Illinois. Stovall also recovered the first fumble of his career against the Illini.
Stovall saw the first game action of his Husker career as a sophomore, appearing in all 12 games. He was a key member of Nebraska’s special teams throughout the season and added depth in the secondary. Stovall finished with four tackles, registering a stop against Northern Illinois, Rutgers, Purdue and Penn State. Each of his four tackles came on special teams, as Stovall ranked third on the team with his four special teams tackles.
