Nebraska Football: Ben Stille makes most of opportunity at Shrine Game

A lot of love has been directed at Nebraska football wide receiver Samori Toure for his performance at the Shrine Game. Rightfully so, he played very well. However, there was another player who represented Nebraska on Thursday night that also held his own.

Defensive lineman Ben Stille was able to make an impact, even if it did not necessarily show up on the stat sheet. Although I was not able to land official statistics for him, he recorded around 2.5 tackles, a half a sack, and half a tackle for a loss. He still was able to make an impact for the East Team defense.

He was active and involved in many of the plays, and it looked like he was really swarming the football. There was a play in particular where he met quarterback Brock Purdy in the open field. There, he was able to take the quarterback down before the latter was able to get any extra yardage. It was a really heady open-field play.

Stille’s performance on Thursday night reminded me of his performance on many Saturdays for the Nebraska football program. He was not going to light up the statistics sheet, but he was dependable. He was in his proper spots, and that allowed him to make key tackles throughout the course of the game. I personally do not think he is going to be a high draft pick. He could however find a home in the later rounds.

His performance on Thursday night allowed his stock to go up as well. He made the most of his opportunity, and he was able to help the defense. I was impressed with what I saw, and I’m hoping he can parlay that into something bigger in just a couple of weeks.  At the very least, he was able to make a good impression.
