Travante Stallworth, WR

Asked about his goals for his senior year, Travante Stallworth mentions only wins and bowl games, nothing about catches.

I really thought that Stallworth was going to have a great season last year after his performance in the Utah St game. He never really made a lot of noise after that. I hope 2012 is his break-out season!
