- Nebraska Scholar-Athlete Honor Roll (Fall, 2011)
Sophomore Joseph Rotherham will contend for the role of Nebraska's long snapper in 2013, following the graduation of four-year starter P.J. Mangieri. Rotherham walked on to the NU program in 2011, and has backed up Mangieri the past two seasons.
The Nebraska special teams unit will also be breaking in a new kicker and punter as the Huskers try to remain one of the nation's best in those areas.
2012 (Redshirt Freshman)
Rotherham backed up Mangieri as the long snapper, and saw action against Idaho State.
Rotherham redshirted in his first season in the program and added depth.
Before Nebraska (notre dame DE La baie academy)
Rotherman joined the Nebraska program as a walk-on from Notre Dame de la Baie Academy in Green Bay, Wis. He was coached by John Nowak at one of Wisconsin’s most successful prep programs.
Joseph was born on April 22, 1993, and is the son of Gary and Sharon Rotherham. He has not declared a major, but did earn a spot on the 2011 Nebraska-Scholar Athlete Fall Honor Roll. He has volunteered his time with Husker Heroes and local hospital visits.
