AT COLORADO: 2009 (Jr./Sr.)—A special teams performer, he served as the backup snap specialist, both for short (placements) and long (punts) kicks. He did not play in any games, though in the season finale, was on the field and was set to snap for the PAT kick after CU scored with 0:00 on the clock to pull to within 28-20; the officials waved off the kick attempt as rules stipulate no attempt is required if it doesn’t affect the outcome of the game. Since he could graduate the following May, he decided to forego an extra year of eligibility in 2010.
2008 (Soph.)—He was second on the depth chart all season at long snapper; he did not see any game action but was on the travel squad for every road game in addition to dressing for all home contests.
2007 (Fr.-RS)—He did not see any regular season action; he dressed for all six home games, the Colorado State game in Denver and for the Independence Bowl against Alabama. He was the coaches’ choice for the scout team special teams player of the week for the Texas Tech game. He took every snap in the spring game.
2006 (Fr.)—Redshirted; he joined the team as a recruited walk-on in September and dressed for the final four home games of the season.
HIGH SCHOOL—A two-year letterman in football, he was Landon’s Special Teams most valuable player his senior year, an award that had previously never been given to a long snapper. He never missed a snap in his two seasons, and took every snap as a senior. At fullback, he rushed the ball 102 times for 392 yards and four touchdowns. He added two receptions for 38 yards. Defensively, he chipped in 18 total tackles (eight solo), including two for a loss and one quarterback sack. As a junior, he carried the ball 19 times for 93 yards as a fullback and added nine total tackles (six solo) on defense, including two for a loss and a quarterback sack. Under head coach Rob Bordley (and his special teams coach, Drew Johnson), Landon went 8-2 both his junior and senior seasons, both resulting in IAC Conference Championships. He also lettered in track in high school, competing in the shot put, discus and 400-meter dash.
ACADEMICS—He majored in Music Composition at Colorado and owned a grade point average in excess of 3.70; he was on schedule to graduate in May 2010. At his high school graduation, he received Landon’s prestigious “Faculty Award.”
PERSONAL—Born June 9, 1987 in Washington, D.C. Hobbies include writing music, producing CDs of his songs, singing, performing and playing the piano and drums. He has released three CDs on ITunes, many more songs on MySpace, and has videos on YouTube. Upon graduation, he hopes to be a pop star and a professional long snapper.
