When Carey Woods was recruited out of Bemidji, Minnesota, North Dakota State coaches knew he had tons of big play ability. But it's been Woods ability to quickly pick up the little things that's allowed him to get on the field this season. The redshirt freshman scored his first career touchdown last week in a 24-23 win over Northern Iowa. And with more success in practices during the week, he's seeing his playing time grow.
"You know I came in here last year a little rough, a little new to the whole football scene and last week I showed myself that I can actually do some things here and I can make some moves that I've been able to do in practice but haven't been able to do in games so far," said Woods.
"Where Carey initially was thought of going in as a guy where 'ok he's a substitute wide receiver' you saw him play at a critical part of the game," added head coach Craig Bohl. "I thought it was a great pass but it was a pretty difficult catch."
Woods is third on the team with 6 catches for 57 yards and one score.
