» Nebraska Scholar-Athlete Honor Roll (Fall 2012, 2013; Spring 2015)
Junior Robby Painter will look to provide depth on the Nebraska offensive line in 2015. The 6-4, 290-pound Painter has the versatility to play either guard or center and will look to compete for playing time during fall camp. A walk-on from Colorado, Painter has added more than 40 pounds of muscle during his time in the Husker program.
Painter added depth at tackle, but did not see game action.
2013 (Redshirt Freshman)
Painter served in a reserve role, but did not play in a game.
Painter redshirted his first season at Nebraska and worked on the scout team.
Before Nebraska (Grandview HS)
Painter played at Grandview High School, one of the top 5A prep programs in Colorado, and helped the school reach the semifinals of the state playoffs in both 2010 and 2011. As a senior, Painter was a team captain and his play helped Grandview to an 11-2 record with an offense that averaged nearly 200 rushing yards per game. Painter also made 12 tackles and had a sack on defense.
In 2010, Painter helped Grandview to a 9-5 record and a trip to the state semifinals. Painter was originally committed to Eastern Washington, and also had offers from UNLV, Northern Colorado and Colorado School of Mines.
The son of John and Jan Painter, Robby was born on Oct. 8, 1993. He is a mechanical engineering major and has been named to the Nebraska Scholar-Athlete Honor Roll three times. He has volunteered his time with Husker Heroes, Uplifting Athletes and team hospital visits.
