Leading up to the close of training camp, boiseburn.com will give you a closer look at the position-by-position breakdown of players who have been signed by the Burn and are expected to attend camp. Other players may be added at each position before the season opens March 28 at Tri-Cities. Preseason Position Analysis: Receivers Signed**: 6 Returning: Casey Allen, Ahmad Harris, Shadrach Okoebor New: Jerard Rabb, Nate Kimbrough, Nichiren Flowers Casey Allen: One of two players in franchise history to appear in every game (Levi Madarieta) and ranks first all-time in receptions (187), receiving yards (2,189), and receiving touchdowns (45). Also carried the ball 11 times for 35 yards and seven touchdowns in 2008. Totaled 17 receptions for 170 yards and two scores in two meetings with Central Valley and had a four-touchdown game on June 28 against Tri-Cities. Was part of Linfield?s 2004 NCAA Division III National Championship team. Ahmad Harris: Entering his third season with the Burn, Harris tallied twenty touchdowns (15 receiving, 5 rushing) in 2008. He was also the team?s leading rusher with 135 yards. Biggest day came against Tri-Cities on May 31, when he caught 8 passes for 152 yards and five scores. Trails only Casey Allen in team history in receptions, yards, and scores through the air. Played collegiately at Louisiana Tech and spent time on the practice squad for the NFL?s Tampa Bay Buccaneers. Shadrach Okoebor: Finished fourth on the team in receptions (39), receiving yards (389), and receiving touchdowns (8) in 2008. Also had 72 yards and another touchdown on the ground. Saw his productivity increase as the season wore on, highlighted by an 8-reception, 110-yard, 2-touchdown game at Stockton on June 21. Two-time honorable mention All-Big Sky at Idaho State. Jerard Rabb: Former Boise State standout who is perhaps best-known to local fans as the player on the receiving end of a lateral that led to the game-tying touchdown in the closing seconds of the 2007 Fiesta Bowl, a game won by Boise State over Oklahoma in overtime. Played two years for the Broncos, catching 75 passes for 1,158 yards and nine scores. Signed with the NFL?s Dallas Cowboys after his BSU career concluded but spent most of that season on the San Francisco 49ers? practice squad. Nichiren Flowers: He should be familiar to Boise State fans as a former Nevada standout and he should also be familiar to Burn fans. Flowers had 134 yards receiving and two scores for Central Valley against Boise in Qwest Arena last May, finishing the 2007 af2 campaign with nearly 1,000 yards receiving for the Coyotes. Flowers had nine receptions on the blue turf for Nevada in 2005 and finished his Wolfpack career with 26 career receptions against Boise State. Nate Kimbrough: The 6-foot-1 Arizona State product had 37 receptions in his collegiate career, including two touchdowns.
