Offensive guard Chris Long provided quality depth on the offensive line throughout his Nebraska career. The 6-4, 300-pound Long was poised to earn playing time during his senior season, but a knee injury sidelined him for the majority of the 2015 campaign.
Long was a leader off the field during his time in Lincoln, being honored for his work in the classroom and the community. Long was an Academic All-Big Ten choice in 2015, and will earn his degree in child, youth and family sciences in May of 2016.
Long provided depth throughout his career. As a senior, he worked his way to second on the depth chart and saw action against South Alabama, before a knee injury sidelined him for the season. Long did not see action the three previous years, but was a valuable practice contributor. A walk-on Long redshirted in his first season in the program in 2012.
Before Nebraska (Blair HS)
Long helped lead Blair High School to the Nebraska Class B semifinals as a senior. He was an All-Nebraska second-team member according to the Omaha World-Herald and was part of the Lincoln Journal Star Class B all-state team. Long anchored an offensive line that helped produce over 30 points per game for the Bears. Also a member of the Blair wrestling team, Long finished as the state runner-up in the heavyweight class as a senior with a 41-4 record. Long chose Nebraska over scholarship offers from Nebraska-Omaha and Northwest Missouri State.
The son of Patrick and Stacy Long, Chris was born on Feb. 25, 1993. He volunteered his time with local hospital and school visits, NFL Fuel Up to Play 60, Husker Hotline, Husker Heroes and Uplifting Athletes. In addition to being a regular on the Brook Berringer and Tom Osborne Citizenship Teams, Long was awarded a HERO Leadership Award in 2015.
