• In 2011, Dugans tutored true freshman Eli Rogers to lead the Cardinals in receptions with 41, and red-shirt freshman Michaelee Harris caught 37 passes for a team-high 455 yards. True freshman DeVante Parker caught a team-high six touchdown passes on just 18 receptions.
• Dugans oversaw a unit that was consistent in 2010, and made a number of big plays led by senior Doug Beaumont, who paced the Cardinals with 41 receptions for 440 yards and a score.

Georgia Southern
• Georgia Southern wide receiver Raja Andrews broke several school records during his senior campaign, en route to finishing 15th nationally in receptions per game and 20th in receiving yards.
• Andrews also smashed the single-season records in receptions by 25 (64), receiving yards by 200 (873) and most games gaining 100 receiving yards by three (5).
• In 2008, the speedy receiver corps accounted for the majority of the team's 42 receptions of 20-plus yards.
• During the 2007 season the receivers corps caught eight touchdown passes, including the third-longest completion in program history (Michael McIntosh, 81 yards). That year Andrews nearly set the season receptions record, finishing one shy of the mark.

Florida State
• FSU ended its 7-6 season with a victory over UCLA in the Emerald Bowl. The year prior, he worked as a graduate assistant with the Florida State Strength and Conditioning program.
