Sautter: In-state standouts from Nebraska’s Friday Night Lights camp

Omaha Burke running back James Burks was the first to the line during every drill, where he showed his quickness and elusiveness.


World-Herald prep recruiting specialist Mike Sautter was at the first of Nebraska’s Friday Night Lights camp this summer. Nebraska commit Garrett Nelson was in attendance but did not participate in the on-field drills.

Here are the in-state players who performed the best at the camp on Friday:

2021 Omaha Westside defensive back/running back Avante Dickerson: Dickerson is explosivem, as evident by his 4.41 40-yard dash and 34-inch vertical Friday night. He made one of the best plays of the night at defensive back in one-on-one drills. It looks as though the sky is the limit with Dickerson, and he has a very bright future ahead.

2019 Lincoln North Star linebacker Luke Reimer: Reimer has five Division I scholarship offers and more are likely on the way. Reimer ran a 4.53 40-yard dash and had a 32-inch vertical jump. On the field he performed more than adequately. Reimer was one of the best linebackers at the camp from the in-state or out-of-state players.

2019 Omaha Burke RB James Burks: Burks was the first to the line during every drill, where he showed his quickness and elusiveness. A state champion wrestler, Burks showed that he is a more-than-capable athlete on the football field.

2020 Johnson-Brock wide receiver Ty Hahn: Hahn showed some burst and is built well at 6-foot-2, 183 pounds. He showed strong hands and crisp route running. He won more than he lost in one-on-one drills.

2020 Kearney running back Miko Maessner: Maessner is explosive. In one-on-one battles, he was a winner and showed his competitiveness. His athleticism could translate to defensive back in college with his burst and explosiveness.

2019 Seward quarterback Joseph Krause: Krause has a solid frame, big arms and can move out of the pocket with just about anyone. A 31-inch vertical on Friday night doesn’t hurt, either.

2019 Wahoo linebacker Sam Kolterman: Kolterman is compact and can move well in space. Listed at 6-foot and 202 pounds, he ran through drills well and was good in coverage. He plays with aggression.
