Grant Wistrom

Grant Wistrom was a two-time consensus All-American and two-time Big 12 Defensive Player of the Year at defensive end. He won the Lombardi Award and was selected Big 12 Male Athlete of the Year as a senior. After winning three national championships at Nebraska, Wistrom was drafted by the St. Louis Rams. He played for the Rams from 1998-2003, winning a Super Bowl ring along the way, before playing three more years for the Seattle Seahawks.
