Before Nebraska (Omaha Creighton Prep HS)
Glassman is a product of Omaha Creighton Prep High School, one of the state’s top prep programs. Glassman turned down an offer to walk-on at Nebraska out of high school and also had an opportunity to join the Army football program. He enrolled part-time at UNO for the fall semester and joined the Huskers in January of 2006.

Glassman played for Coach Tom Jaworski at Creighton Prep, where he was a teammate with Husker sophomore Zach Potter. Glassman helped the Junior Jays to a state title in 2004, playing tight end and defensive tackle.

Glassman was a Lincoln Journal Star academic all-state pick, and also played basketball and participated in track. He was a captain on the basketball team, helping Prep to the state finals as a senior, and was a two-time qualifier for the state track meet, once in the shot put and once in the 4x100 meter relay.

Glassman is the son of Mike and Mary Glassman, and was born on Nov. 8, 1986. He is a biological sciences major and psychology minor, and has volunteered with NU’s team hospital visits.
