OREGON — There is a lot to be said about the heart and determination that has been displayed by the walk-on who has accepted his role at this level instead of being a starter elsewhere. Yet he has gladly served as a special teams mainstay and made the most of any opportunities he can muster from the line of scrimmage. Coaches remain confident in his abilities and he has improved his blocking technique. Will continue to make the most of his ability, with perhaps his greatest opportunities coming as a kick returner. Was unable to better his 4.74 electronic 40 clocking from the 2006 off-season yet averaged about 20 lbs. of improvement in each of three lifts. Ranked second among running backs with a 308-lb. power clean and 445-lb. squat.
2006 — Injuries made a point of occurring at the most inopportune time. Suffered a broken left thumb just as he began to find his niche as a punt returner, running back six kicks for 104 yards vs. Portland State. Team’s fifth-leading rusher also added 23 yards and one touchdown rushing against PSU. Stepping on the field for nine games, also added 28 yards on the ground vs. Stanford in addition to one tackle the following week at Fresno State.
2005 — Took part in four games, including four snaps against Montana and Oregon State, while accumulating a 53-yard kickoff return vs. Montana and running back one punt for 11 yards at Houston. Also tallied 1 yard rushing on season’s lone carry from scrimmage against the Grizzlies. Applauded as special teams offensive player of the week for aiding preparations in consecutive games vs. Washington, Arizona, California and Washington State.
2004 — Made his way onto the field for two games, accumulating career-high 47 yards rushing against Idaho in addition to catching one pass for 22 yards. Also returned one kickoff 5 yards at Oregon State. Cited for scout team play following games at Washington State (offense), Oklahoma and Stanford (special teams).
HIGH SCHOOL — The school’s 2003 Athlete-of-the-Year nominee finished his career as a second-team all-Interscholastic League running back before finishing second in 100-meter dash at the district track meet and 12th at state (11.16).
