2019 Season Outlook
Redshirt freshman Colton Feist will add depth on the defensive line in 2019. The 6-2, 280-pound Feist worked at defensive end this spring, one of Nebraska’s deepest and most experienced positions. Feist joined the Nebraska program as a walk-on after a standout prep career at Yutan High School. A business administration major, Feist carried a 3.666 cumulative grade-point average in his first year on campus, and he made the Nebraska Scholar-Athlete Honor Roll in each of his first two semesters.
A walk-on from Yutan, Neb., Feist redshirted in his first season at Nebraska in 2018.
Before Nebraska (Yutan HS)
Feist created havoc for his opponents as a defensive tackle at Yutan High School. He helped lead the Chieftains to the Class C-2 state title as a senior when Yutan handed Centennial its only loss with a 27-6 victory. Feist recorded 110 tackles, including 22 for loss as a senior. Additionally, he had 13 sacks, six quarterback hurries, three forced fumbles and a fumble recovery. Feist was named to the Lincoln Journal Star Super-State team and the Omaha World-Herald All-Nebraska team. He was also named an honorary captain of the Class C-2 all-state team. Following his prep career, Feist represented the North Squad in the 2018 Nebraska Shrine Bowl.
Colton was born on May 18, 2000, and is the son of Julie and David Feist. He is majoring in business administration. Feist volunteered his time with Husker Heroes, the Nebraska Football Road Race, the Malone Center and local hospital visits.
