AT COLORADO: This Season (Sr.) - He enters the fall listed second on the depth chart at tight end.  He won the Iron Buffalo Award for the tight ends for his spring work in the weight room.

2013 (Jr.) - He played in all 12 games, including starting on nine occasions, and also saw significant time on special teams.  Primarily used in blocking situations, he did catch nine passes for 68 yards and a touchdown.  His top game was at UCLA, when he caught three passes for 23 yards, with his other multi-catch game against Colorado State in the opener (two for 12 yards).  His TD reception covered 10 yards from Sefo Liufau in the California game, giving the Buffaloes a 10-0 lead at the time.  On special teams, he recorded 11 knockdown blocks on the kickoff return unit; those are credited with clearing the path for additional yardage on a return. 

2012 (Soph.) - He played in all 12 games, including three starts, making 14 receptions for 109 yards (7.8 per) and a touchdown; eight of his grabs earned first downs (both of his third down catches earned firsts).  His first career catch was for a touchdown, covering nine yards against Sacramento State.  He caught three balls for 20 yards in two games, at Washington State and versus Arizona State.  He also saw action on special teams (recording one point, a knockdown block).  He improved during the spring, and caught three passes for 32 yards in main scrimmage action.

2011 (Fr.-RS) - He saw action in seven games on offense and special teams, making one start, versus Washington State when the offense opened in a two-tight end set.  He did not have any receptions, but had one knockdown block on kickoff return unit duty.  He had a solid spring, catching five passes for 68 yards and two touchdowns in the three main spring scrimmages.   Three of those receptions for 50 yards came in the spring game, including touchdowns that covered 22 and seven yards.

2010 (Fr.) - Redshirted; practiced the entire fall at tight end.  He was the Scout Team Special Teams Award winner for the Georgia game.

HIGH SCHOOL - The first signee to commit in June of 2009, he earned All-Region honors from PrepStar and SuperPrep, where he was ranked as the No. 48 player from the midlands and was the third tight end on that list.  He was one of seven tight ends named to the prestigious Tacoma News-Tribune Western 100 list.  Rivals.com ranked him as the No. 11 player from Colorado while Scout.com ranked him the No. 45 tight end and ESPN ranked him as the No. 53 tight end in the country.  In his career, he had 100 receptions for 1,298 yards and eight touchdowns.  As a senior, he earned All-Colorado (all classifications) as a defensive end and All-State (5A) as a tight end by the Denver Post.  He also earned first-team All-Big 8 league honors on both offense and defense and was named first-team All-Area by the Columbine Courier.  On offense as a senior, he caught 40 passes for 412 yards while on defense, he had 68 tackles, 12 sacks, 10 pass break-ups and eight forced fumbles.  Against Columbine, he had eight catches on offense and 12 tackles as Chatfield came back from a 13-0 deficit to win 16-13 on a 46-yard field goal as time expired.  Against Bear Creek, he had six catches on offense and 10 tackles on defense.  As a junior, he earned second-team All-Big 8 Conference honors and was the team’s second leading receiver with 41 catches for 605 yards and four touchdowns.  He led the team in receiving as a sophomore and earned second-team All-Big 8 Conference honors, catching 19 passes for 291 yards and four touchdowns.  Against Pomona his sophomore year, he had three key catches as Chatfield defeated the second-ranked team in the state.  He also lettered three times in basketball, averaging 4.1 points and 2.8 rebounds as a senior for a 20-5 Chatfield team.

ACADEMICS - He graduated with a degree in Communication at Colorado in December 2013; he is currently pursuing a second major in Political Science.  In high school, he was twice named to Chatfield’s Honor Roll (3.5 or higher GPA for the semester).

PERSONAL - He was born August 31, 1991 in Walnut Creek, Calif.  His hobbies include playing lacrosse, video games, lifting weights and hanging out with his friends.  His family has been CU football season ticket holders for 20 years and he has been coming to Folsom Field for as long as he can remember and his parents and grandparents all attended CU.  His grandfather, Jack Anderson, played baseball at CU and was a long-time member of the CU Board of Regents, where he was a key figure in CU’s change to blue uniforms in the early 1980s.  His football team volunteered at the Denver Rescue Mission and served food and he has volunteered though his church, packaging and shipping food.
