“Keenum to Edwards, Touchdown!” Houston Cougars fans got used to hearing those words from 2008-11 while gunslinger Case Keenum was setting the NCAA’s all time record for passing yards, completions, and touchdowns. Wide receiver Patrick Edwards was a key reason why Case was able to have such a successful career as he was on the receiving end of many of those passes. Originally a walk-on, Edwards would rack up 4,507 receiving yards and 43 touchdowns in four years on Cullen Blvd.

Now Edwards has joined UH alumnus and former offensive coordinator Jason Phillips at the University of Kansas. Edwards is currently working as an intern on the KU strength staff. It wasn’t that long ago that Todd Reesing was lighting up scoreboards and the Jayhawks were two games away from being in the national title game. Hopefully Phillips and Edwards can help bring some of that high-octane offense back to Lawrence.
