Fresno State: Steady player who has overcome injuries and made a contribution to the team last season ... a hard-working walk-on player .... should see action again in his senior season.

Personal: Born December 8, 1987 in Los Angeles ... the only child of Erik Rashad and Cathy Letzia ... his cousin Alex Barton played football for Florida State and another cousin Freddy Michelle played football for the Philadelphia Eagles ... lists Walter Payton as favorite athlete because he was relentless in the way he ran the ball despite his size and proved to be a hard worker ... lists biggest athletic thrill as seeing results that I am pleased with due to his hard week ... most admires his mother, Cathy ... also recruited by Arizona, Nevada, Minnesota and Oregon State ... chose to attend Fresno State because it is a great program.
