BOZEMAN – Senior receiver David Dash, projected as a prime contender for a starting receiver spot for the Bobcat football team this fall, suffered a knee injury in practice Tuesday morning that likely ends his career.

The injury marked the end of a promising senior season for Dash, who played in all 12 games and caught seven passes in 2013. “I feel sick for David,” said Bobcat coach Rob Ash. “He’s worked so hard to get himself into this position. This is just terrible news.”

The injury marks the second consecutive season that the Bobcats lost a projected or possible starting receiver before donning shoulder pads. Last year Kurt Davis suffered a knee injury after the season’s first practice while running extra pass routes. “It’s just unbelievable that we’ve lost a player two years in a row in just helmets,” Ash said.

A senior from Fontana, Calif., Dash played sparingly as a true freshman in 2010, then redshirted the next season. He played as a sophomore in 2012. The redshirt season means Dash’s eligibility is exhausted, and he is slated to graduate from MSU with a degree in sociology in December.
