COLLEGE

Started 37-of-42 games over three years at Eastern Washington and generated 19 100-yard performances… hauled in 221 catches – third-most in school history and seventh in Big Sky Conference – for 3,731 yards (second in program history) and 33 touchdowns (second-most at EWU)

 

• 2012: Earned the 2012 FCS Wide Receiver Award from College Football Performance Awards and numerous first-team accolades, including All-Big Sky Conference selection… started 13 games, eclipsing 100 yards in 11 contests… broke the FCS record for single-season receiving yards with 1,850 on 93 catches and 16 touchdowns (mark was previously held by Eddie Conti of Delaware in 1998)… posted a career-best 215 receiving yards on nine receptions with three touchdowns vs. Sam Houston State… 93 catches rank second in school history, two shy of the program record

• 2011: Redshirted as an injury hardship case after starting the first four games for the Eagles, having broke a metacarpal in his left hand against Montana State (9/24/11). He had surgery on Oct. 3, 2011, and shortly after that had knee surgery to repair a nagging injury from early in the 2010 season. He was one of four Eagles to undergo surgery in a five-day span from Sept. 29-Oct. 3. In NCAA Football Championship Subdivision statistics released on Oct. 2, he was 11th in receiving (7.25 with 29 total) and 14th in receiving yards per game (93.3 per game with 373 total yards). He opened the 2011 season with 10 catches (20th in EWU history) for a career-high 140 yards in Eastern’s opener at Washington (9/3/11). His performance helped Eastern to a dominating 504-250 advantage in total offense in the 30-27 loss as he was one of four Eastern receivers to record career highs for receptions and yards in the game. With the Eagles at the Washington 25-yard line and poised to score the go-ahead touchdown, Desmond Trufant out-positioned Kaufman for a game-clinching interception for UW with 29 seconds to play. Trufant’s brother, Isaiah, played for Eastern from 2002-05. Kaufman also had eight catches versus South Dakota (9/10/11) and six catches for 140 yards and a touchdown versus MSU before his injury. He earned honorable mention nationally by the College Football Performance Awards for his performances against UW and MSU. Entering the season, Kaufman joined teammate Bo Levi Mitchell on the Walter Payton Award “Watch List” as a candidate for the award given to the top player in the NCAA Football Championship Subdivision by The Sports Network. Selected to the 28-member Athlon College Football Preview preseason All-America team and was also a first team preseason All-American by Phil Steele’s FCS College Football Preview. The Sports Network selected him as one of the top 10 returning wide receivers in FCS in 2011, and he earned a similar honor from College Football Performance Awards as one of the top 38 receivers back. Earned preseason All-Big Sky Conference honors as selected by the league’s media and sports information directors, and was also a first team All-BSC selection by Phil Steele. Was limited in spring drills because of surgery following a shoulder injury suffered in the 2010 season.

• 2010: First-team All-Big Sky Conference honors and second-time conference All-Academic team selection… started all 15 games and led the team with 76 catches (fifth-most in school history) for 1,214 yards… caught the second-most touchdowns (15) in the FCS… named NCAA Championship Subdivision Playoffs MVP by College Sporting News following a nine catch, 120 yard performance with two touchdowns in a 20-19 win vs. Delaware in the FCS title game… eclipsed 100 receiving yards in six games

• 2009: Named to the Big Sky Conference All-Academic team… saw action in nine game, five as a starter as a true freshman… finished the year with 23 catches for 294 yards and one touchdown… made all but one of his 23 grabs in the team’s last six games… tallied a season-best six receptions for 70 yards and his first career score on a 20-yard grab vs. Stephen F. Austin (11/28) in the FCS Playoffs
