College Football World Reacts To Fordham Player’s Insane Stat


Fordham was simply outmatched by Nebraska on Saturday afternoon, but senior linebacker Ryan Greenhagen had a performance that he’ll never forget.

Greenhagen was so active against the Cornhuskers that he finished the game with 30 tackles, tying an FCS record that was originally set by Josh Cain of Chattanooga in 2001.

In addition to tying an FCS record for most tackles in a single game, Greenhagen set a new Nebraska opponent record for that same category.

Although there weren’t many positive takeaways from the Rams’ performance this Saturday, the college football world made sure it gave Greenhagen the credit that he deserved.

“Fordham linebacker Ryan Greenhagen has 30 tackles against Nebraska, the most in Division I since Donald Payne had the same number for Stetson against Campbell in 2014,” Eric Olson of The Associated Press.

“30 tackles for Fordham’s Ryan Greenhagen,” Chris Basnett of Husker Extra said. “A Nebraska opponent record. Preseason FCS All-America.”

Greenhagen certainly validated his status as an FCS All-American candidate with his performance against Nebraska.

In 2019, Greenhagen led Fordham with 123 tackles. After racking up 30 tackles in the program’s season opener this year, he’s on pace to post even better numbers this fall.

Fordham will be back in action next Saturday against Monmouth. College football fans should expect another strong performance from Greenhagen.
