Lori Endicott

Volleyball, 2023

Lori Endicott was the first Nebraska volleyball player to be recognized as the conference player of the year and was the first Husker to play in the Olympics. Endicott hit over .300 as an outside hitter her first two seasons, when she was also a part-time setter. In her sophomore season, she played a key role in leading Nebraska to an NCAA runner-up finish. Endicott moved into the starting setter role as a junior and senior, when she was the Big Eight Player of the Year and an All-American each season. As a junior, she was the 1987 Big Eight Player of the Year and a second-team All-American. In her final season in 1988, Endicott repeated as Big Eight Player of the Year while earning first-team All-America accolades and second-team Academic All-America recognition. She ended her career as Nebraska’s all-time leader in assists (3,117). From a team perspective, Endicott helped Nebraska to the Big Eight title in each of her four seasons from 1985 to 1988, including four regular-season championships and three tournament titles. Following her Husker career, she was a member of Team USA for the 1992 and 1996 Olympics, winning a Bronze medal in the 1992 Barcelona Games. In 2005, she was a recipient of the USA Volleyball “Flo” Hyman All-Time Great Women’s Player Award.


Darin Erstad

Baseball/Football, 2018

Darin Erstad was a history maker on the diamond, and he was also the starting punter on the Huskers' 1994 national championship football team. Erstad helped Nebraska to 103 wins as a three-year baseball letterwinner from 1993 to 1995. He was the first Husker to be a conference player of the year and was NU's first finalist for a national player-of-the-year award. Despite playing only three seasons, Erstad ended his career with a school-record 261 hits. At the conclusion of his career, he also ranked second all-time in doubles (46), third in home runs (41) and RBIs (182) and fifth in runs scored (188). In his final season in 1995, Erstad was a first-team All-American, the Big Eight Co-Player of the Year and a finalist for the Golden Spikes Award. He hit .410 that season with 19 homers and 79 RBIs and a school-record 46 extra-base hits. Erstad left Nebraska following his junior season after being selected with the No. 1 overall pick in the 1995 MLB Draft. Erstad went on to a 14-year career, where he became the first player in MLB history to win Gold Glove awards at multiple positions. He was a three-time Gold Glove winner overall and a two-time All-Star. In 2000, Erstad led the majors with 240 hits, won a Silver Slugger Award and became the first leadoff hitter in MLB history to drive in 100 runs. Erstad returned to Nebraska as a volunteer coach in 2011 and has served as the Huskers' head coach since 2012. He led NU to its first Big Ten title in 2017, when he was the conference coach of the year. On the football field, Erstad accepted Tom Osborne's invitation to join the Huskers in 1994, when Erstad ranked 14th nationally in punting average (42.6) as Nebraska went 13-0 and won the national title.
