He completed 130-of-213 pass attempts for 1,662 yards and 25 touchdowns... He was third on the team in rushing for 343 yards and eight touchdowns on 123 attempts... His 25 TD passes matched Martinson for third on BSU’s single-season touchdown passes list, while his 61-percent pass completion rate ranks third on the teams single-season charts and his 160.61 passing efficiency is second only to Martinson’s 2001 mark (165.4)...

Finished the 2008 season passing for more than 250 yards and leading the Beavers to wins in three of their last four games.... Recorded his first three-TD game versus Minnesota  State (10/18/08)... Followed that up with consecutive three-TD outings at nationally-ranked Minnesota Duluth (10/25/08) and versus U-Mary (11/1/08)...
