The junior started each of the Beavers’ 11 games and finished the season having a hand in 33 of the Beavers’ 49 offensive touchdowns... 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)... Edholm threw for a personal-best five touchdowns twice in 2009 (10/24/09 and 10/31/09), ran for three TDs (9/5/09) and rolled up 391 yards through the air versus University of Minnesota Duluth (10/31/09).
