In addition to Darin Erstad being named Big Ten Coach of the Year, six Huskers also earned Big Ten honors on Tuesday. That included Jake Meyers (utility) and Scott Schreiber (designated hitter) who were both first-team picks.
Angelo Altavilla (shortstop) and Jake Hohensee (starting pitcher) were also honored, being selected as third-team choices. Third baseman Luke Roskam was the unanimous pick for the All-Freshman team and Ben Miller received Nebraska’s Sportsmanship Award.
This is Schreiber’s second straight year earning first-team honors and is the first Husker to earn first-team honors in consecutive seasons since Pat Kelly. As for Meyers, he moved from third-team choice in the outfield for 2016 to first-team honors this year for his work as both a position player and Nebraska’s Sunday starter. During Big Ten play, Meyers led Nebraska to a 7-0-1 record when he was on the mound.
