Profile
Served as the Bucs' kick return specialist for three seasons but never really had a chance to show his rushing skills in that time. Released in camp in 1985 and played briefly that year as a kick returner for the Redskins. Burst onto the season in the 1982 pre-season where he led the team with 233 yards rushing including an 80-yard TD against Philadelphia. Led the UNLV Rebels in rushing all four seasons he played college football and also appeared in the Japan Bowl after his senior season. Originally wore the 1 shirt as a rookie and also in his second season but switched to No.20 in 1984.
