Former Nebraska DE Jack Gangwish played bowl game with broken hand

If you didn’t think the Nebraska Cornhuskers had some tough players this season, all you have to do is look at defensive end Jack Gangwish. He finished the season with a dislocated elbow and revealed that he also played in the Foster Farms Bowl with a broken hand.

He was in a cast at Thursday’s Outland Trophy bangquet and he revealed that he suffered the injury during the bowl game, in which the Cornhuskers rallied to beat UCLA, 37-29.

“Your last game of your senior year is no time to take a seat,” Gangwish told

Right now, the former senior co-captain is trying to prepare for his March Pro Day. He hopes to move on to either the NFL or CFL once he graduates.

After his senior season, where he recorded 15 tackles, four for loss, and 1.5 sacks, he should be able to provide much-needed depth for any team.
