Collie Catches on Quick


So much for learning curves. Former BYU standout receiver Austin K. Collie (’08) made the transition from college to pro football look easy. On the receiving end of Pro-Bowler Peyton Manning’s passes, Collie led all NFL rookies in 2009–10 in receiving touchdowns (seven) and tied for first in rookie receptions (60). His breakout season hit a high point in the AFC Championship game, where Collie caught seven passes (including the 46-yard grab pictured here) for one TD and 123 yards, en route to a 30-17 victory over the New York Jets and a trip to the Super Bowl.
