Positives … Has good size with a thick chest, broad shoulder and a developing frame that can carry additional bulk … Effective in moving out to seal the corner and demonstrates adequate up field blocking skills … Shuffles his feet to gain position when walling off his man … Has worked hard to develop proper hand punch techniques in pass protection … Has a decent burst off the snap and the change of direction agility to get out in front on traps and pulls … Better as a center than tackle, as he is more comfortable working in combination with his guards than being isolated in one-on-one match-ups on the edge.

Negatives … Has good weight room strength, but it does not translate to the football field … Still over-extends when trying to work the screen … Gets too high in his stance and shows a narrow leg base in pass protection, causing defenders to knock him off stride … Sloppy trying to pick up the blitz, as he tends to drop his hands too quickly after the initial hit … Has to show better backpedaling ability, as he has difficulties dipping his hips to contain the bull rush … Stamina is an issue, as he seems to wear down late in games … Lacks the leg strength to get a good anchor and needs to show more force behind his hand punch … Not the type than can be counted on to neutralize linebackers in the second level, as he shows stiffness in his running stride and is late to make contact on the move.

2004 Season

Earned All-Big Twelve Conference honorable mention after starting all twelve games at offensive center … Was a big reason behind the season-long improvement in the offensive line, as he led the way for A&M's first 1,000-yard rusher (Courtney Lewis) since 1998 … Collected 61 knockdowns with six touchdown-resulting blocks.

2003 GAME Analysis

Arkansas State … Credited with five knockdowns, opening a hole used by tailback Courtney Lewis for a 42-yard touchdown run.

Pittsburgh … Redirected to the right side of the line to take down defensive tackle Vince Crochunis on an 18-yard scoring pass from Reggie McNeal to Jamaar Taylor.

Kansas … Combined with guard Alan Rueber to open a rush lane used by McNeal for a 4-yard scoring run as the Aggies generated 547 yards.

2003 Season

Was impressive in his first year as a starter … Had the unenviable task of replacing four-year starter Seth McKinney … Started every game and played a large role in the A&M offense that ranked as one of the best in school history … Provided protection for A&M passers that set school records for season passing yards and touchdowns.

2002 Season

Saw limited action as a backup center.

2001 Season

Redshirted as a freshman.

Injury Report

No injuries reported.

Off-Field Issues

In March 2004, Aggie players Cole Smith and Geoff Hangartner were suspended from the team. Hangartner was arrested after failing a sobriety test and charged with driving while intoxicated. Smith received a citation for public intoxication. Smith and Hangartner were suspended until they fulfilled certain requirements including community service, multi-cultural counseling and an alcohol awareness course.

In the case of Smith and Hangartner, immediate action was essential due to the police report that received national attention. In that report the officer stated that witnesses claimed the players were yelling racial slurs at the passengers of another vehicle. Whether the allegations were true, had the players not been disciplined, Aggies would have been marked as racists. Hangartner, however, denied making any racial slurs and subsequently took part in a polygraph test, which validated his claim.
