David Corley
Corley furthered his reputation as a dual-threat in 2001, leading William & Mary to the playoffs for the first time in his career. The then-junior completed 179 of 311 passes for 2,808 yards and 22 touchdowns, while also rushing for 335 ands five scores. Corley's passing numbers tapered off a bit down the stretch, as he failed to complete 50 percent of his passes in three of the Tribe's last four games. Expect the Columbia, SC native to erase any doubts about his skills this season, while putting Jimmye Laycock's team in position for its first playoff win since 1996.
-Tony Moss

Richmond head coach Jim Reid on Corley, "David can do so many things, in my mind David is like a field general. He has great poise, you can tell he knows his protections very well and where to escape. He knows when to escape. He just has a mastery of what William & Mary would like to do. You can't ever stop him and there's always a way out for him. And it's not instinct, it's knowledge. You can see it. I just think he's a marvelous football player."
