2014 Outlook
Sophomore Ryker Fyfe has added depth at quarterback during his first two seasons in the Nebraska program and made his mark with a strong spring in 2014. The 6-2, 210-pound Fyfe spent spring ball splitting reps at the No. 2 quarterback spot with redshirt freshman Johnny Stanton, and Fyfe will enter fall camp in hopes of earning playing time this season.

Fyfe has made outstanding progress in the strength and conditioning program during his time with the Huskers, adding more than 30 pounds of muscle. Fyfe has a strong arm, and the mobility to be a threat as a runner. Fyfe originally joined the program as a walk-on after a strong career at Grand Island High School.

2013 (Redshirt Freshman)
Fyfe was a reserve quarterback and played in Nebraska’s win over South Dakota State. He completed his only pass attempt for five yards, and also had a three-yard run.
 
2012 (Redshirt)
Fyfe redshirted his first season at Nebraska and worked on the 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.
