Sophomore Ty Kildow brings explosive speed to the NU offense and will look to make an impact at running back in 2011. The 5-7, 180-pound speedster spent his first two seasons at receiver before switching to I-back in the spring. He could also use his talents to help the NU return game. Kildow is accomplished in the classroom with a 3.643 cumulative grade-point average after four semesters.
2010 (Redshirt Freshman)
Kildow was a reserve receiver, but did not appear in a game.
Kildow redshirted in his first season at Nebraska. He missed part of the fall with a knee injury.
Before Nebraska (Millard South HS)
Kildow came to Nebraska after a standout career at Millard South High School, where he missed his senior season because of a knee injury. As a junior, Kildow was a Super-State selection by the Lincoln Journal Star and a first-team All-Nebraska pick by the Omaha World-Herald, while also being named the honorary captain of the World-Herald's Class A all-state offense. He caught 44 passes for nearly 1,000 yards and 10 touchdowns and also had two kickoff return touchdowns and three interceptions.
Kildow was coached at Millard South by former Nebraska defensive back Andy Means. Kildow turned down scholarship offers from UNO, North Dakota and Northwest Missouri State. He was also a baseball standout for the Patriots, having been a three-time first-team Super-State pick and leading Millard South to a third-place finish in the state tournament as a senior.
Ty is the son of Jack and Shelly Kildow and was born on Aug. 15, 1990. He is majoring in biological sciences and is a four-time Big 12 Commissioner's Honor Roll selection. Kildow has volunteered his time with Play it Smart and Nebraska's team hospital visits.
