It's now 86 days until the kickoff of Catamount football on Labor Day Weekend, Saturday, September 1, 2018, against the Newberry College Wolves, in Cullowhee.
For the season kick-off game, the Cats will host a "White Out" game in E.J. Whitmire Stadium as the Cats will sport its all-white look with white Adidas jerseys over white pants and for a fourth-straight year, postgame fireworks extravaganza follows the home-opener.
To help pass those long summer days, and hopefully get the Catamount faithful more excited about the upcoming season, and knowledgeable of the team members, we'll continue the 100-day football countdown each day until kickoff day.
Today we'll highlight another wide receiver:
