2005 (Sr.)—He saw action in three games (New Mexico State, Oklahoma State, Texas A&M), as he was listed fourth at the “x” receiver position.  He had a second consecutive active spring, as he led the team in receiving in the three full scrimmages with seven catches for 107 yards and a touchdown.  He also has worked hard in the weight room and has added 15 pounds of muscle to his frame over the last year.

 

2004 (Jr.)—He saw action in three games (North Texas, Kansas, Kansas State; no starts), but did not catch any passes.  He was second on the team in receiving in the three main spring scrimmages, catching nine passes for 118 yards.

 

2003 (Soph.)—He did not see any game action, but practiced all year at wide receiver and dressed for seven games.  He caught three passes for 33 yards in the three main spring scrimmages.

 

2002 (Soph.-RS.)—Redshirted; he transferred from Scottsdale Community College, and practiced the entire fall at receiver after joining the squad as an invited walk-on in August.  He did not see any playing time, but did dress for eight games, including the Alamo Bowl.  Thus, he automatically redshirted for the year.

 

AT SCOTTSDALE CC (Fr.)—He lettered as a wide receiver in 2001, nabbing 21 receptions for 460 yards and four touchdowns, scoring in each of the last four games.  SCC won the Arizona Athletic Conference title, but lost to Garden City CC in the Valley of the Sun Bowl.  His junior college coach was Ken Giovando. 

 

HIGH SCHOOL— He lettered twice in football at Grand Junction, reeling in 27 catches for 680 yards and nine touchdowns as a senior, and 13 receptions for 210 yards as a junior.  Central was 6-6 his senior season and 5-6 his junior year under coach Vern McGee.  He also lettered twice in basketball as a forward.

 

ACADEMICS—He is majoring in international affairs at Colorado.  He was an academic all-state selection in basketball as a senior in high school. 

 

PERSONAL—Born January 19, 1983 in Grand Junction, Colo.  Hobbies include hunting, fishing and playing video games.  He has a rich bloodline that has participated in college and professional sports.  Brother Dan was a fellow wide receiver for the Buffs (2001-03), while his father (Daniel) was a centerfielder with the Expos and Brewers, and his grandfather (Danny) was an outfielder with the Giants and Indians.
