It’s only July, but with the Cards officially in the ACC now, that opening football game against Miami on September 1 feels like it’s right around the corner. Because of that, it seemed like a good time to update you on the wide receiver record books at UofL. Senior DeVante Parker has a chance to put his name at or near the top of a lot of lists for the Cards this season. These are only the career lists, but of course he can make his way onto season-leading lists as the season goes on. Let’s see where he stands right now entering the 2014 season.
The Countdown to Kickoff is now at 10 days! Here is former UofL Wide Receiver Arnold Jackson!
Arnold Jackson: (1996-2000)
Career Stats: 44 games played, 300 receptions, 3,670 yards (12.2 avg), 31 TDs, Long of 86 yards
Jackson holds the record at UofL for most receiving yards with his 3,670 yards. The next closest is Harry Douglas, and he isn’t that close with 2,924 yards! Arnold Jackson was an explosive player, and also a great punt returner. Anytime he touched the ball, there was excitement because the fans knew a TD was very possible!
He also holds the UofL record for most receptions with 300. The next closest is Ibn Green with 217!
