The wide receiving corps for the 2012 Colorado State Rams football team doesn't boast a strong resume for impactful production on Saturdays, but Marquise Law and Charles Lovett are hard at work to make sure the big plays happen in the passing game more often this season. The two talented Florida natives recently spoke about their connection from on and off the field with Matt Stevens of the Coloradoan, and it all links back to their high school careers in Florida, according to Lovett:
"Me and ‘Quise, we have a thing called ‘swag,' you know? We have to represent Florida because we have a reputation of just having talent," said Lovett, who's from Tampa. "We came up here to Colorado State, 29 hours from home, and need to show what we can do on the field. It's been going well so far.
"[Law] gels off me; I gel off him. I teach him; he teaches me. We feed each other."
The competition at the WR spot should be wide-open in 2012, as the leading receiver to return (Lou Greenwood) only produced 26 catches for 396 yards last season. Sure, that trumps the five catches and 25 yard for Lovett and three receptions for nine yards from Law, but perhaps the two Florida natives will turn up their intensity during the upcoming season and rise to the occasion.
