Griz Receivers: Exceeding Expectations

Posted: Updated:

They've been responsible for plenty of exciting plays this year, and were one of the least experienced groups heading into the 2013 season, but the Grizzly receivers are exceeding expectations, and their new playbook doesn't hurt.

"A whole new offense, so everything has been great for me, I love the new offense, Torrey has been great, he helps us out.  He's a young guy with a lot of energy so he's been a lot of fun to work with," says senior receiver Cam Warren.

And team leading receiver Ellis Henderson agrees, and contributes his 8 touchdown catches  this season to quarterback Jordan Johnson, and the offensive line.

"This year with the protection we have, it allows you to be really creative in your routes, and coach Kefense always says he wants you to make a little move and get a little saucy with it so it's nice to come out here and have a little more creativity," says the sophomore Henderson.

One of the bigger question marks heading into the season, the receiving corps is pleased with how they've done mid-way through the year.

"We've played great teams so far, great secondaries, and every week is a challenge, but we kind of have the mentality of that quiet confidence, that we come out here and we're not going to be stopped, and we'll do everything we can to get better each day," says Warren.

And for first year coach Torrey Myers, having 10 players with five or more receptions…is the most impressive thing. 

"Now, when a guy is in the game, you can't just key in on a guy, you can't double-team Ellis (Henderson), or double-team Taylor (Walcott), or Cam (Warren), because there are other guys that will make you pay for it, and to me that's the biggest thing we've been able to get done is every guy has had some key moments in a game so far, and that's been pretty cool," says Myers.
