    @George Hernandez I have to agree with you….Congratulations, Rene! I’ve been watching this kid since his freshman year. He should’ve played varsity as a freshman. This kid can do it all; run, catch, block, return kicks, play defense, sell popcorn, etc…I’m excited to see how his career evolves at NAU. Congratulations to NAU, you got a good one. Good luck, Rene!
