In his three years at Coastal, David Duran has caught 58 passes for 820 yards, averaging an impressive 14.1 yards per reception. He is only two receptions shy of becoming the first Big South tight end to have 60 career receptions. Gardner-Webb’s Josh Miller is currently the league’s all-time leader for receptions by a tight end with 59.
That record will be put on hold as he announced this week he will have season-ending surgery on Nov. 1 to repair his shoulder, injured during the Georgia game. Duran played sparingly the following week at North Carolina A&T and has missed each contest since.
Duran, who was shutout in the season-opening Furman win, had three catches for 61 yards in the Catawba win, added an 11-yard reception at Georgia and caught one ball for three yards at North Carolina A&T.
Duran currently ranks seventh on the CCU all-time receptions list and sixth on the all-time receiving yards list.
