In the 2002, season this Miami defensive lineman was credited with 7 sacks. An All-Big East selection, among other awards, he was a signature force on the defensive line.

This electrifying Miami Hurricane tight end was a matchup nightmare. In 2005 season opener at the Florida State Seminoles, the dominant TE caught game-high eight passes for 137 yards. He also caught four straight receptions on third down on the final drive of the nail biter to ensure 10-7 Hurricane victory.

Returning to another Miami vs Nebraska blowout, the 1992 Orange Bowl resulted in a 22-0 slaughter of the Cornhuskers by the Canes. This dynamic wide receiver caught the opening touchdown of the game in the left side of the end zone. One of the fastest players in college football at the time, this blazer had three consecutive games with a punt return for a touchdown. This achievement still a Miami record.

This Miami Hurricanes safety pulled off one of the most memorable moments of the 90’s. The Hurricanes were trailing the West Virginia Mountaineers 7-3 with seconds left in the game. In this shocking play, this Cane blocked a punt in the waining moments. Following the block, Jack Hallmon relinquished the ball to Nick Brooks. Brooks’ 20-yard TD return ended up sealing the victory for the Canes.
