» Nebraska Scholar-Athlete Honor Roll (Spring 2013)
Andy Janovich has teamed with 2013 senior C.J. Zimmerer to give Nebraska two reliable options at the fullback position the past two seasons. However, with Zimmerer having moved on following graduation, The 6-1, 230-pound Janovich is poised to take the bulk of the snaps at the fullback spot this fall.
The 6-1, 230-pound Janovich is one of the strongest players on the roster and provides a physical punch as a lead blocker. He is also a capable option as both a runner and receiver out of the Husker backfield. Janovich has also seen action on special teams throughout his career and is likely to contribute in that role again in 2014.
Originally a walk-on, Janovich earned a scholarship before the start of the 2013 season, marking the fastest walk-on to earn a scholarship in Bo Pelini’s tenure as head coach.
Janovich played in all 13 games and alternated time at fullback with Zimmerer. Janovich did not have a carry on the season.
Janovich did not play in the season’s first three games, but became a regular contributor in the final 11 games. He started against Idaho State and Ohio State and finished the year with three carries for six yards, all against Idaho State. He also caught two passes for 13 yards, with one reception each against Idaho State and Ohio State. Janovich also saw action on NU’s kickoff return unit.
Andy is the son of Ron and Brenda Janovich and was born on May 23, 1993. He earned a spot on the Nebraska Scholar-Athlete Honor Roll in the spring of 2013.
