Played in nine of 10 games with starts in the last seven ... missed the first game while still recovering from a knee injury that cut short his 2006 season ... was second on the team with 34 catches for a team-high 686 yards ... averaged 20.2 yard per catch ... had three touchdown receptions of over 50 yards (54 vs. Frostburg State, 85 at Marist and 58 vs. La Salle) ... ranked 36th nationally in receiving yards per game (76.2) ... topped the 100-yard mark four times ... set career highs for catches (seven) and yards (113) against Frostburg State ... had two catches for 108 yards - including an 85-yard touchdown - at Marist ... had five receptions for 100 yards at Iona and three for 101, including a 58-yard score, against La Salle ... caught four or more passes in a game five times.

Caught three passes for 105 yards, including a 52-yarder, in just over two quarters of action in the season-opener at Bucknell before being lost for the season with a knee injury ... the 105 total yards and 52-yard catch were both career highs.

as a sophomore (2005):
Led the team in catches and yards (31-504) and tied Dan Spriggs for team-high with four touchdown receptions on his way to earning first team all-league honors ... tied his then-career high with six catches (for 66 yards) in the season opener versus Robert Morris ... posted his first career 100-yard game with four grabs for 103 yards at Iona ... caught a then career-long 49-yarder versus the Gaels ... also had a 40-yard catch at Marist ... caught a 35-yard scoring pass at Penn ... also posted TDs versus Saint Peter's, La Salle and at Saint Francis
