The Fresno State Bulldogs continued practicing Wednesday afternoon. The 2010 receiving core features several veterans and newcomers that are projected to play. Check inside to see the latest from Senior Devon Wylie and the receivers…

The Fresno State offense will depend on the performance of the upperclassman receivers, as well as the freshman receivers. The freshman receivers will play their first college football game in the national spotlight Saturday. Senior Devon Wylie and freshman Josh Harper commented on the 2010 season.

Senior Devon Wylie has proven to be a big weapon for the Bulldogs’ offense. However, some injuries have hampered his impact on the offense in previous seasons. Wylie commented on his health during the preseason.

“I felt good,” said Wylie, “I practiced everyday… I’m ready to play”

Despite missing some of last season, Wylie feels confident about his chemistry with quarterback Ryan Colburn. “I feel like it’s really good right now,” said Wylie.

The senior receiver also will be contributing to special teams. Wylie revealed what his role will be this year, “Returning; punt return, kick return”

Wylie also talked about how he hopes to make an impact on this year’s team, on offense and special teams. “What I want to do is when a big play is needed, make the big play.”

While the upperclassman receivers are focused on a successful season, the freshman receivers are preparing for their first college football experience. Josh Harper commented on how he feels preparing for his first game.

“It feels good,” said Harper, “I know the crowd is going to be out there, I mean I’m excited to see the fans I never played in front of a big crowd like that so I’m anxious to see the fans”

Harper showed no signs of fear about heading into a college football atmosphere for the first time; in fact, he feels it will elevate his performance. “It will make me better. When I see a lot of people out there it makes my adrenaline rise a lot.”
