Junior quarterback Ryker Fyfe served as the top backup to Tommy Armstrong Jr. in the 2014 season. The 6-2, 210-pound Fyfe played in seven games, and this spring he will try to push for more extensive playing time at quarterback.
The Grand Island, Neb., native has added more than 30 pounds of muscle during his time in the program. Fyfe showed his ability to handle the Husker offense in his limited work, and has a strong arm and the mobility to be a running threat.
Fyfe saw most of his action late in games, but did see snaps at Michigan State and Iowa when Armstrong was temporarily sidelined. Fyfe rushed for 47 yards on seven carries, while completing 4-of-10 passes for 40 yards and a touchdown.
Fyfe rushed four times for a season-high 29 yards against Florida Atlantic. Against Fresno State, he completed 2-of-3 passes for 22 yards, including a 10-yard touchdown pass to Christian Bailey. Fyfe was 1-of-2 passing at Michigan State and led NU to a touchdown.
2013 (Redshirt Freshman)
Fyfe saw action in NU’s win over South Dakota State, completing his only pass attempt for five yards and running for three yards.
Fyfe redshirted in 2012 and worked on the NU scout team.
Before Nebraska (Grand Island HS)
Fyfe guided one of the most potent offenses in Nebraska as a senior, leading Grand Island to nearly 400 yards of offense and 40 points per game. He was a first-team Omaha World-Herald All-Nebraska pick, and was the quarterback and honorary captain of the Lincoln Journal Star’s Super State team. A dual-threat quarterback, Fyfe threw for 1,921 yards and 20 touchdowns as a senior, while also rushing for 746 yards and 14 scores, averaging 6.4 yards per carry.
Fyfe completed 59 percent of his passes as a senior and averaged 16.0 yards per completion. As a junior, Fyfe finished with 1,492 passing yards and 14 touchdowns. Fyfe, who also played basketball and baseball, started at quarterback for the North team in the 2012 Nebraska Shrine Bowl and threw a 17-yard touchdown pass to fellow Grand Island product Sam Foltz. Fyfe chose to walk on at Nebraska over a scholarship offer from Nebraska-Kearney.
