03/21/2012 - 03/20/12 NFL DRAFT SCOUT RISER: Aaron Corp, QB, Richmond: A USC transfer, Corp had a very up-and-down career at FCS-level Richmond with only average production, including a career TD-to-INT ratio of 20-to-17. However between the Combine and his pro day last Friday, his draft stock is on the rise. Corp, who measured in at 6-3?? and 215 pounds, posted positive numbers in drills with a 4.65 40-yard dash, 31.5" vertical leap, 4.30 short shuttle and 7.03 3-cone drill. But it was his performance throwing the ball that created some buzz. With nine NFL teams in attendance at Richmond's pro day, Corp's arm strength looked better than advertised with the footwork and quickness to maneuver well in the pocket and throw on the run. He also assured those in attendance that his 2010 season-ending knee injury was fully healed. Corp is still graded as a priority free agent by most teams, but it wouldn't be a huge shock to hear his name late on draft weekend because of his performance since the season ended. He projects as a developmental, third-string quarterback at the next level. - Dane Brugler, NFLDraftScout.com

03/16/2012 - The University of Richmond hosted its NFL Pro Day on Friday where coaches from nine NFL teams watched six former Spiders work out in Robins Stadium. The six players that participated in the Pro Day activities were Richmond's Aaron Corp, Tremayne Graham, Tre Gray, Richard Muldrow, Michael Parker and Colin Pehanick. In addition to the six Richmond players, there were also four players from Liberty University and two players that were individually represented. "We had a really good turnout of NFL coaches for our Pro Day this year," said Danny Rocco, the new head coach for Richmond's football team. The nine NFL teams represented during the Pro Day were the Browns, Dolphins, Eagles, Falcons, Giants, Jets, Redskins, Saints and Vikings. The players were assessed in various drills, including the bench press, vertical jump, broad jump, 40-yard dash, shuttle run, long-shuttle and three-cone drill. The players also ran through different positional workouts, including route-running and defensive drills. Some of Richmond's top players felt that their Pro Days were accurate reflections of their abilities. "I think it went well today," Gray said. "I didn't make any mistakes or drop any balls. Everything felt really well when I went through all of the drills." Gray will spend the remaining time until the NFL draft training at his home in Texas. "Having Trey here for the Pro Day was good for both of us," Corp said. "I threw the ball well today and well at the Combine, so I'm happy with that." Corp said his knee is fully healed, and he is feeling as strong as ever after his recovery from his season-ending knee injury during the 2010 season. - Ryann Dannelly, The Richmond Collegian

03/15/2012 - The University of Richmond will welcome National Football League scouts and position coaches to Robins Stadium on Friday, March 16 for the Spiders' annual Pro Day. This year's events will be closed to the general public. Among the players participating in the Pro Day activities will be Richmond players Aaron Corp, Tremayne Graham, Tre Gray, Richard Muldrow, Michael Parker and Colin Pehanik. Richmond's Pro Days have traditionally been well attended by NFL scouts and coaches in recent history, as current NFL players and Spider alumni Tim Hightower (Washington Redskins running back), Justin Rogers (Buffalo Bills running back) and Lawrence Sidbury (Atlanta Falcons defensive line) have all participated. - Richmond football

The Villa Park, Calif., native completed his first 15 passes of the night and did not have an incompletion until the third quarter. Corp engineered two fourth-quarter game-tying drives, including a 4-for-4 effort for 63 yards with just over 10 minutes left in the game then with two minutes left he put together a 5-for-6 sequence which spanned 64 yards in just over three minutes. - CAA football

10/09/2011 - D.J. Soven's 27-yard field goal on the final play gave Towson a 31-28 victory over Richmond on Saturday night and overcame a record-setting performance by Spiders quarterback Aaron Corp. Corp completed 31 of 34 passes, a 91.2 percent completion percentage, for Richmond (3-3, 0-3 Colonial Athletic Association), surpassing the Football Championship Subdivision record for quarterbacks throwing at least 30 passes in a game. Drake's Mike Piatkowski set the previous mark of 90.9 percent (30 for 33) last week against Campbell. Soven's kick capped a 54-yard drive by the Tigers (4-1, 2-0), which included five carries by Terrance West, who finished with 128 yards and four touchdowns on 21 carries. Corp passed for 353 yards and two fourth-quarter touchdowns. The second tied the game at 28 with 2:38 remaining.

09/18/2011 - Aaron Corp threw a pair of touchdown passes to Tre Gray in the second quarter, and Richmond held on to a hefty halftime lead in a 34-19 win over Virginia Military Institute on Saturday night.

09/10/2011 - Aaron Corp threw for 236 yards and two touchdowns, and Kendall Gaskins led the rushing attack for Richmond in a 21-6 win over Wagner on Saturday night. Richmond (2-0) never trailed in the contest despite two interceptions thrown by Corp, who completed 16 of 25 passes. However, the Spiders quarterback did connect with Ben Edwards on 56-yard score in the first quarter and tossed a 6-yard touchdown to Kevin Finney to give Richmond a 14-3 lead in the third. Gaskins rushed for 98 yard on 24 carries for the Spiders, who played in their home opener after knocking off Duke in Durham, N.C., last week. He scored on a 1-yard run to give Richmond a 15-point advantage in the final quarter. Tre Gray caught six passes for 85 yards for the Spiders. Nick Doscher, who was sacked three times, threw for 121 yards for the Seahawks (1-1). - AP Sports

09/04/2011 - Garrett Turner rushed for a 1-yard touchdown on fourth down with 10:12 remaining to help Richmond beat Duke 23-21 on Saturday night in the season opener for both teams. The Spiders, members of the Football Championship Subdivision, beat the Blue Devils of the ACC for the third time in the last six seasons. Will Snyderwine missed a 28-yard field-goal attempt that would have given Duke the lead with 1:43 remaining. And, after forcing a punt on Richmond's last possession, his 60-yard kick on the final play of the game also came up short. Richmond's Remington Hinshaw missed his extra-point try wide right after Turner's touchdown, leaving the door open for Duke's late game-winning attempts. Aaron Corp passed for 193 yards, a touchdown and an interception for Richmond. Trey Gray added eight receptions for a career-high 129 yards. Desmond Scott rushed for 80 yards and a touchdown for the Blue Devils. - AP Sports

08/24/2011 - Aaron Corp has had more than his share of breaks during his college football career. Unfortunately for Corp, most of those breaks have been bad. He was set to be the starting quarterback for the University of Southern California Trojans, one of the country's most storied programs, in 2009. Then, a 300-pound offensive lineman rolled up Corp's leg during preseason, breaking Corp's fibula. Corp lost the starting job to freshman wunderkind Matt Barkley. Corp decided to transfer, far from his native Southern California, well out of his comfort zone. He came to the University of Richmond, a Football Championship Subdivision school, a level below USC. After four games last season, Corp seemed to be hitting his stride. Then, he suffered a major knee injury, and his 2010 season was over. Now, in his final year of college, Corp has to compress several years of football into one. He has to avoid injuries, play well, help Richmond win and influence pro scouts in the span of 11 games. "I don't think about it like that," Corp said. "If we're winning, if we're having success on offense, things will take care of themselves." Corp has not fallen off the grid. He was a bona fide USC player, and NFL scouts don't lose track of quarterbacks with potential. Still, Corp has to play well this season. "No one is going to put more pressure on Aaron Corp than he puts on himself," UR coach Latrell Scott said. "He says everybody expects a quarterback from USC to throw for 3,000 yards and 40 touchdowns. I don't think those are his expectations. "He wants to win games. If he has to throw 10 times and hand off 50, he will. If he has to throw 35 or 40 times a game, I'm sure he can." - Paul Woody, The Richmond Times Dispatch

08/23/2011 - The University of Richmond says head football coach Latrell Scott has resigned. The school did not say in a statement released Tuesday why Scott resigned. Offensive coordinator Wayne Lineburg has been named interim head coach. Director of Athletics Jim Miller said in the statement that although the timing and circumstances surrounding Scott's resignation were unfortunate, he was confident that Lineburg, his staff and players will have a successful 2011 season. Richmond named Scott head coach in December 2009. Then 34-years-old, Scott was one of the youngest head coaches in the country. He previously served three years as the Spiders' wide receivers coach before having similar jobs at Tennessee and Virginia. The Spiders went 6-5 last season. - AP Sports
