Notes:
Big Sky Conference co-Offensive Most Valuable player as a junior for an Eastern Washington team that went on to win the 2010 FCS National Championship...A candidate for the Walter Payton Award, presented by The Sports Network to the top offensive performer at the FCS level, was named All-American by the coaches even though his junior campaign was cut short...First Team All-Big Sky and Third Team AP All-American as a sophomore when he ranked second in the nation in all-purpose yards with 195.4 ypg...Missed the last 2 1/2 games of the 2010 season for the Huskies with a foot injury, although in the game in which he was injured he still managed to generate a career-high230 yards versus North Dakota State in the quarterfinals of the national championship playoffs...Finished with a staggering 1,742 yards and 14 touchdowns on 221 carries last season, accounting for all but three of his team's rushing scores and the bulk of its 2,341 yards on the ground...Has been used on both punt and kickoff returns in his career, and also showed the ability to catch the ball coming out of the backfield, so he is an all-around talent who should find a home in some capacity at the next level.
