Blazer Names to Know: #14 Willie Edwards

Edwards has yet to see any action for the Blazers after redshirting in 2003 and then sitting out '04 and '05 with health issues. Before coming to UAB, the LeFlore High School standout was named to the all-region team in his senior year and was voted the team's MVP after recording 42 catches for 770 yards and 9 TDs. During spring ball for the Blazers, Edwards appeared ready to step in and contribute immediately during the second spring scrimmage as he caught 3 passes for 66 yards, two of which were TD grabs of 37 yards and 18 yards. It was his strong performance during spring training that elevated him to the #2 spot on the depth chart in the "X" wide receiver position behind #25 Norris Drinkard.
