Feature story on Royce Pollard

About how freshman WR Royce Pollard will get playing time vs. Nevada, Ron Lee said:
“He’s going to get his shot. This is a week we’ll see what he can do.” (HSB)

HSB Note: “The coaches said Malcolm Lane remains the starter on the right side opposite Greg Salas, and Pollard will rotate into the game. Pollard has filled in at times this season to give other receivers a break, and has three receptions for 59 yards. He got into last week’s game at Boise State on UH’s final possession and made a tough catch on the sideline for a 29-yard gain.”

Feeling that he’s ready for the playing time, Pollard said:
“I feel like I have a good understanding of how the pace is and not to rush through things, just relax and just apply what we do in practice.” (HSB)

HSB Note: “Pollard redshirted last season and opened some eyes by turning in big plays in the Warriors’ scout bowl during their bye week last month and again last week.”

About how Pollard has been improving and has done well when he’s had a chance to play, Mac said:
“He made some good plays in the game, he’s been steadily improving and he’s an excellent freshman so he’s going to see more action. He’s taken advantage of his opportunities and that’s what we always tell them. He’s doing good in practice, I’m really excited about him.” (HSB)
