2019 Season Outlook
Redshirt freshman running back Brody Belt was one of the breakthrough stories of Nebraska’s 2019 spring practice session. A walk-on from Millard West High School in Omaha, Belt spent a majority of the spring practice working with the top offensive unit, putting him in a position to contend for playing time this fall. The 5-8, 185-pound Belt could also push for action on Husker special teams units.
Belt gained valuable experience while redshirting in his first season at Nebraska in 2018. Belt enrolled early and participated in spring practice and benefited from a full offseason of training.
Before Nebraska (Millard West HS)
Belt was named a Lincoln Journal Star second-team all-state running back as a senior in 2017 for state quarterfinalist Millard West. Belt rushed for 1,567 yards and added another 214 yards receiving, as he scored 26 total touchdowns. As a junior in 2016, Belt rushed for 208 yards on 20 carries with five touchdowns, and he was an Omaha World-Herald honorable-mention all-state selection as he helped the Wildcats to the state quarterfinals. Belt also participated in basketball and baseball at Millard West.
Brody was born on April 14, 2000, and is the son of Bob and Amy Belt. He is majoring in sports media and communication. Belt has volunteered with Husker Heroes, the Nebraska Football Road Race, the Sock Drive and local hospital visits.
