» Nebraska Scholar-Athlete Honor Roll (Fall 2013, 2014, 2015; Spring 2014, 2015, 2016)
Senior Logan Rath is among a group of players who will look for an expanded role on the defensive line in 2016. The 6-4, 280-pound Rath has been a key reserve at defensive tackle the past two seasons and hopes to help fill the void left by the departure of 2015 starters and NFL Draftees Maliek Collins and Vincent Valentine.
Rath joined the Nebraska program in 2013 after beginning his college career at South Dakota State. He has been outstanding in the classroom, earning spots on the Nebraska Scholar-Athlete Honor Roll six times. He carries a 3.638 cumulative grade-point average in agricultural economics and will graduate in December.
Rath was a key reserve at defensive tackle, but did not see action in a game.
Rath provided depth on the defensive line and played against Florida Atlantic and Fresno State. In the season opener against FAU, Rath had four tackles and one tackle for loss.
2013 (Redshirt Freshman)
Rath sat out the season after transferring from South Dakota State.
Before Nebraska (Giltner HS/South Dakota State)
Rath redshirted during the 2012 season at South Dakota State, while working on the defensive line. At Giltner High School, Rath played eight-man football and helped the Hornets to a 10-0 start in 2011, before falling to Howells, 26-20, in the D-2 state quarterfinal. Rath was a two-time first-team all-state selection and a three-time all-district pick at Giltner.
The son of Jack and Gail Rath, Logan was born on April 7, 1993. He is majoring in agricultural economics. Rath has volunteered his time with Husker Heroes, Husker Hotline and team hospital visits.
