Sophomore Lane Hovey hopes to push for playing time in a deep receiving corps in 2014. The 6-4, 205-pound Hovey is among the Huskers’ biggest receiving targets and had an outstanding spring practice session, bolstering his hopes of finding his way into the playing rotation.
Hovey is one of Nebraska’s top student-athletes off the field. He carries a perfect 4.0 cumulative grade-point average in business administration, and he has also earned a spot on the Brook Berringer Citizenship Team the past two years.
2013 (Redshirt Freshman)
Hovey added depth at receiver and appeared in the Huskers’ wins over South Dakota State and Southern Miss. He did not have a reception.
Hovey redshirted his first season at Nebraska.
Before Nebraska (ADM Adel HS)
Hovey helped lead ADM Adel (Iowa) High School to a 12-1 record as a senior in 2011, when he was a Class 3A first-team all-state selection. He was a standout for an ADM receiving corps that ranked second in the state in touchdown receptions, third in catches and fourth in receiving yards. Hovey ended his career on a strong note, leading his team with four catches and 33 receiving yards in his final game, a loss in the semifinals of the Iowa Class 3A state playoffs. Hovey also played basketball and ran track for the Tigers.
Lane is the son of Kent and Sondra Hovey and was born on Oct. 8, 1993. He is a business administration major and has been named to the Nebraska Scholar-Athlete Honor Roll each of his first four semesters. Hovey is a two-time member of the Brook Berringer Citizenship Team. He has volunteered his time with Uplifting Athletes, Husker Heroes, Husker Hotline, FCA, Teammates, and local hospital and school visits.
