Buffs Counting On Receiver Paul Richardson

BOULDER, Colo. (CBS4) – In three weeks the University of Colorado Buffaloes open the season against the Colorado State University Rams. One weapon the Buffs are counting on is receiver Paul Richardson.

If Richardson can stay healthy it would be considered a successful season for the junior, but he has much bigger plans. The Buffs desperately missed his ability last year, but now he is back and healthy.

“I’m pretty much here to do whatever coach needs me to do. I run around inside, I run around outside. I can go wherever they ask me to go,” Richardson said. “The coaches have been trying different things with me, working with me and I’ve been working with them, putting us in the best position to make the plays and move the ball around, so it’s been fun.”

“I think that’s the one thing that separated Marvin Harrison from other receivers was his hands. Paul has great hands, he can make the difficult catches,” wide receivers coach Troy Walters said. “He is just a confident player. He would probably most resemble Marvin Harrison, which is high praise.”

“(He’s) definitely X-factor, he’s an amazing player and athlete and. I would have to say ‘wow,’ “ Buffs defensive back Parker Orms said.

The fans can remember him from two years ago. He hauled in 284 yards against the Bears. The fans for hoping for the same this year.
