One position of great change for the Fort Hays State football team is wide reciever. Gone are O.J. Murdock and Cordarol Scales who both singed as rookie free agents with NFL teams.
It will be a new perspective for three of the Tigers wideouts. Keaton Callins, Tanner Hageman and Cole Cherryholmes are all making the transition from quarterback.
Hageman and Callins look to be in the rotation along with junior college transfers Nelson Vazquez and Cornelius Gallon.
Hageman, a sophomore from Cheney, says receivers coach Al McCray has helped tremendously in the transition and new feels comfortable at the position.
Anthony Smith has the most experience among the group. Smith returns for his senior year after missing much of 2010 with a broken jaw.
The Tigers open their season September 1st at home against Emporia State in the Eagle Communications Kickoff Classic.
