Leadership is one of those traits that is a must have for any team. It's not one of those things that shows up in the box score or the win loss column, but if you don't have good leaders, at some point it will rear it's ugly head.

Nebraska is in the midst of replacing their leaders of the last few seasons. Tommy Armstrong Jr and Jordan Westerkamp on offense, and from the Blackshirts, Nathan Gerry and Josh Banderas. Those 4 players started a combined 149 games in their careers. Luckily, the coaching staff has seen some upperclassmen like Chris Weber and Dedrick Young step up their roles on and off the field.

" They do everything they are supposed to do, they're great examples," Mike Riley told the media. "I think they are somewhat of a magnet toward people. Mick Stoltenberg is a magnet for sure people listen to him. I think that leadership has grown and developed, but I think this group in general has been really easy to handle throughout the camp."
