Lane Hovey is one of four walk-ons who came to Nebraska from outside the state borders.

He helped lead ADM to a 12-1 record as a senior in 2011, when he was a Class 3-A first-team all-state selection. He was a standout for an ADM receiving corps that ranked second in the state in touchdown receptions, third in catches and fourth in receiving yards.

Hovey ended his career on a strong note, leading his team with four catches and 33 receiving yards in his final game, a loss in the semifinals of the Iowa Class 3A state playoffs. His third-quarter, 11-yard touchdown pass pulled ADM Adel to within a touchdown.

Hovey also played basketball and ran track for the Tigers.
