Brandon Kaufman named top 10 FCS wide receiver

Last week I told you about how The Sports Network named Eastern Washington University defensive back Matt Johnson as one of the top 10 defensive backs in the FCS.

Today they named EWU's Brandon Kaufman as one of the top 10 FCS wide receivers.

Here's what The Sports Network had to say about Kaufman:

Brandon Kaufman, Eastern Washington, Jr., 6-5, 205 - With star tailback Taiwan Jones sidelined for the FCS semifinals and championship game last season, Kaufman took his play to an elite level, catching a combined 17 passes for 255 yards and three touchdowns for the national champion Eagles. He finished the season with 76 receptions for 1,214 yards and 15 touchdowns in 15 games, and was the first EWU player to score on the new red turf at Roos Field. He uses his big body to be physical in traffic and long legs to get behind the secondary.

Looks like the team is already getting tons of national exposure!

Kaufman also has the distinction of being the first Eagle to score a touchdown on the red turf. I was there as he scored. Fast forward to 2:05 I'm the guy in the number 8 Eastern jersey jumping and screaming.
