2010 SPRING OUTLOOK
Talented veteran receiver who has shown good toughness and pass-catching skills in his time in the program... Is a receiver by trade, but actually doesn't appear on the depth chart because he's focused his time on serving the vital role of holder for all Tiger placekicks, a job which he performed for the first time in 2009, and did so flawlessly ... Has served in past season on kick coverage units as well, but likely won't be in that role this year to keep him healthy for place holding ... Is a likely candidate to serve on the hands team in onside kick situations ... Is an outstanding student who earned 2nd-Team Academic All-Big 12 honors in 2009 for his efforts in the classroom.
Began the year in the depth at the H-receiver position, but eventually was designated to focus his efforts on serving as MU's primary place holder for kicks ... Performed flawlessly, and was a major reason why first-year kicker Grant Ressel was able to set an NCAA single-season accuracy record for combined kicks, as he made 65-of-66 kicks overall on the season ... Was named the team's Walk-On Player of the Year for his sterling efforts on the season ... Did a brilliant job of taking the snaps and getting the ball down on time ... Even got in on the scoring action himself at Colorado, when he shoveled a forward pass to Jacquies Smith on a fake field goal, and Smith went around left end for a 24-yard touchdown in the 2nd quarter ... That was his first career pass thrown, and the TD gives him a passer rating of 631.60 (although he is just slightly below the minimum number of pass attempts to qualify for any records!) ... Caught 3 passes for 28 yards in the Black & Gold Game to close spring camp.
Saw action in nine games on the season, as contributed both on offense and also as part of various special teams units ... Registered one tackle each on kick coverage squads against both Oklahoma and Northwestern ... Had a solid off-season and began fall camp listed No. 3 on the depth chart at the H-receiver position, after spring ball ... Caught 1 pass for a 13-yard gain to close the spring in the annual Black & Gold Game.

Had 6 catches in all on the day for a game-high 102 yards, and added 7.5 tackles on the defensive side ... Was an All-State selection as a linebacker as a senior, and was his team's most valuable player that year, as well ...
