Defenses will need to know where junior Garrett McKay is at all times.

The 5-foot-9, 180 pound junior has the sort of big-play ability – be it torching secondaries as a receiver or zipping around a kickoff team – that can change a game.

He led Whitworth in all-purpose yards (140.9 ypg) last season, which earned him first-team, all-Northwest Conference distinction.
