FAMU WR Lenworth Lennon proving to be 'go-to' guy

After a bit of a slow start, Florida A&M wide receiver Lenworth Lennon has come on strong.

Richard Rowe-US PRESSWIRE - Presswire

After a strong freshman season last year, Florida A&M sophomore receiver Lenworth Lennon was expected to have a breakout season this year. After starting slow, Lennon had his best game of the season this past week and is quickly becoming the go-to receiver for the Rattlers.

In Florida A&M's 44-3 win against Savannah State last Saturday, Lennon caught a team-high six passes for 134 yards and a touchdown. It was his first 100-yard receiving game this season. After catching 45 passes for 596 yards as a freshman last season, many expected Lennon to be the Rattlers top receiver this year. Instead, senior Travis Harvey took over that role despite catching just one pass last season. Harvey leads the Rattlers, with 43 catches for 601 yards and seven touchdowns, but Lennon is beginning to come on strong having caught a touchdown pass in two straight games.

Lennon now has 37 catches for 412 yards and three touchdowns, ranking third in the Mid-Eastern Athletic Conference in yards and fourth in receptions. He said the big game on Saturday was just the start.

"It's a progression," Lennon said, according to Tallahassee.com. "It's going to get better and better every week."
