Honors & Awards
- Nebraska Scholar-Athlete Honor (Spring 2014)
Redshirt freshman Connor Ketter is part of a young, but talented group of tight ends who will compete for playing time over the next several seasons. A walk-on from Nebraska prep powerhouse Norfolk Catholic, Ketter has good size for the tight end spot at 6-5 and 240 pounds, and has added more than 15 pounds of muscle since arriving at Nebraska.
Ketter was one of only a few true freshman walk-ons in the 105-man fall camp roster. He sat out as a redshirt and worked on the scout team offense.
Before Nebraska (Norfolk Catholic)
Ketter was a versatile two-way player for Coach Jeff Bellar’s Norfolk Catholic team. Ketter was a two-time all-state selection who helped his team to three consecutive Class C-1 state titles. As a senior, Ketter had 17 receptions for 262 yards and seven touchdowns, while posting 89 tackles, six sacks and two fumble recoveries on defense. He was a first-team Class C-1 all-state pick by the Omaha World-Herald, while the Lincoln Journal Star named him to its second-team Super State squad and made him the honorary captain of its Class C-1 all-state team.
As a junior, Ketter caught 18 passes for 256 yards and three touchdowns and had 91 tackles, including seven tackles for loss, and three sacks. He was a second-team Super State choice in 2011, and earned first-team C-1 honors from both the Journal Star and World-Herald.
He is the son of Doug Ketter and was born on Feb. 21, 1995. Ketter is a pre-health major and earned a spot on the Nebraska Scholar-Athlete Honor Roll during the spring semester of 2014. He has volunteered his time with Big Brothers/Big Sisters, Uplifting Athletes, Husker Heroes and Husker Hotline.
