AT COLORADO: This Season (Jr.-RS) -- Now healthy again, he enters fall camp listed third at the “mike” inside linebacker position.  He should easily crack the rotation as the coaches utilize as many as four or five inside ‘backers in their schemes.

 

2004 (Jr.) -- He earned a medical redshirt for the season, as he missed the first two games with an injured foot and then the final 10 games with a neck injury.  In-between, he did play in one contest, seeing action for 22 plays against North Texas, where he was in on five tackles, including three solo and a third down stop.  He was injured in practice on Sept. 23, and the injury, basically a bruised spinal cord, required extensive examination by specialists and a lengthy period of athletic inactivity.  He also had foot surgery the last week of spring practice and missed the spring game.

 

2003 (Soph.) -- He saw action in 10 games, including two starts (to open the year against Colorado State and UCLA), missing the Baylor and Kansas games due to an ankle sprain.  Toward the end of the season he also played some defensive end, as he finished up the year with 23 tackles (19 solo), with three for losses to go with two quarterback pressures in 222 snaps from scrimmage.  He had a season/career-high six tackles (four solo) at Kansas State after returning from his ankle injury, along with racking up five tackles against UCLA and four against Colorado State. 

 

2002 (Fr.) -- He saw action in five games over the first half of the season, getting on defense in four games (24 plays in all, no tackles).  He had three special team points on the strength of two tackles and a knockdown block.  He was the Scout Team Defense Award winner for the Missouri game.  He was hospitalized with a life-threatening virus prior to the Buffs’ departure for the Alamo Bowl, and did not suit up for the game. 

 

HIGH SCHOOL -- As a senior, he earned SuperPrep All-America honors (both pre- and postseason), as the magazine ranked him as the No. 25 linebacker in the nation.  He also earned Prep Football Report and PrepStar All-Midlands accolades, with Rivals.com ranking him as the No. 16 inside linebacker in the country.  Closer to home, he earned first-team All-Colorado honors (Denver Post, Rocky Mountain News), all-state (both papers) and all-Prairie League honors, with the Post naming him to its 12-player Blue Chip List.  As a junior, he was first-team all-state, all-league (the defensive player-of-the-year), and also earned first-team All-Colorado honors from both newspapers.  He was a first-team all-Continental League performer as a sophomore, when he also was a second-team all-state selection.  As a senior, he made 179 tackles (100 solo, 79 assists), with 15 for losses and five quarterback sacks; he also had 10 hurries, nine passes broken up, four fumble recoveries, three forced fumbles and an interception and had five games with 20 or more tackles.  On offense, he rushed for 220 yards and eight touchdowns and caught 15 passes for 115 yards and another score.  As a junior, he was in on 184 tackles (nine TFL’s, four sacks), with 10 hurries, nine PBU’s, six interceptions, five recoveries and two forced fumbles (he rushed for 120 yards and four TD’s on offense).  He had 147 tackles as a junior, with four for losses including two sacks, nine hurries and an interception.  Top games included a win over Lakewood as a junior, when he had a career-high 29 tackles, four for losses, with a forced fumble and a recovery.  In a 50-12 win over Lakewood as a senior, he came back with 20 tackles, two for losses, with a fumble force and an interception.  Hinkley was 4-6 his senior year, 9-1 his junior season (Prairie League champions) and 6-4 his sophomore year under coach John Pounder.  He also lettered three times in basketball (forward) and twice in track (sprints, with bests of 11.1 in the 100 and 23.0 in the 200).

 

ACADEMICS -- He is majoring in both economics and education at Colorado.  He was an honor roll student in high school.

 

PERSONAL -- He was born July 12, 1984 in Aurora, Colo.  His hobbies include lifting weights and cooking, and he is very active with his church, playing the drums in an ensemble and mentoring for a youth group.
