Nebraska will honor one of its greatest athletes later this month.
The Huskers announced their plans to retire Jordan Larson’s jersey on Sept. 29 at the Bob Devaney Sports Center. Larson was one of the finest Nebraska volleyball players of all time and was a three-time All-American during her career in Lincoln.

Larson was the Big 12’s Player of the Year and Defensive Player of the Year in 2008 when she led the Huskers to the national semifinals. Larson also helped the Huskers win the 2006 NCAA national title. She ended her collegiate career with 1,600 kills, 1,410 digs and 186 aces — a school record.
The Huskers have retired seven jerseys in program history before Larson’s, most recently honoring Nancy (Meendering) Metcalf in 2011.
Larson has played with Team USA in both the 2012 and 2016 Olympics, earning silver and bronze medals. Her jersey will be retired in a ceremony before the Huskers face Minnesota.
