Senior receiver Quincy Enunwa was a leader for Nebraska on and off the field throughout the 2013 season. With a strong senior season, Enunwa put his name among the elite receivers in Nebraska football history.
One of four team captains, Enunwa caught 51 passes for a team-high 753 yards and a Nebraska record 12 touchdowns. Enunwa closed his season with two touchdown receptions in the Gator Bowl victory over Georgia, including a school-record 99-yard touchdown reception. Enunwa’s 12 touchdown receptions bettered the previous school record of 11 by Heisman Trophy winner Johnny Rodgers.
The 753 receiving yards ranked ninth in school history, while his 51 catches tied for eighth on the NU single-season list. With 51 receptions in 2013, Enunwa has become one of just five players in school history with a pair of 40-catch seasons, joining teammate Kenny Bell, Johnny Rodgers, Nate Swift and Terrence Nunn.
Enunwa started every game, and caught at least three passes in 12 of 13 games in 2013, including a career-high seven catches at Michigan. Enunwa also surpassed 50 receiving yards seven times during his senior season, capped by a career-high 129 receiving yards in the Gator Bowl victory. In addition to his receiving skills, Enunwa is known for his physicality as a perimeter blocker, helping fuel the NU rushing attack.
Enunwa and Bell teamed to give Nebraska one of the Big Ten’s top receiving duos, and also one of the most prolific receiving tandems in school history. In the process both players have made big leaps on the Huskers’ career receiving lists.
Enunwa finish his Husker career in the top 10 on both the receiving yardage and receptions list. Enunwa finished sixth in school history with 115 receptions, while his 1,526 yards rank seventh on the career list.
Enunwa was one of six receivers who saw the majority of the playing time in 2011, and he played in every game and made seven starts. Enunwa finished with 21 receptions for 293 yards and two touchdowns. He had a career-high four catches for a career-best 58 yards in the opener against Chattanooga, including a 31-yard catch in the first quarter.
Enunwa made two big plays in a 42-29 win over Fresno State. He caught a 16-yard TD pass in the third quarter to give NU a 21-20 lead. Earlier in the game, Enunwa caused a fumble following a Taylor Martinez interception, and Nebraska recovered to prevent a Bulldog scoring opportunity.
Enunwa had a 30-yard catch at Wyoming and a 29-yarder at Wisconsin, both of which set up Husker touchdowns. Enunwa made his fourth catch of at least 25 yards against Ohio State, grabbing a career-long 36-yard catch for a third-quarter touchdown to pull NU within 27-20. Nebraska rallied for a 34-27 win after trailing by 21 points in the second half. Enunwa added multi-catch games in each of the final four regular-season games, including three each against both Michigan and Iowa. He had a 19-yard catch in the fourth quarter against the Hawkeyes to set up the game-sealing touchdown.
Enunwa first exploded as a threat in 2008, when he was also a key part of the Rancho Verde offense. Enunwa was ranked among the nation's top 70 wide receivers by Rivals.com and among the top 85 players in the state of California by the recruiting service.
In addition to his football talents, Enunwa was also an accomplished high jumper, finishing third in the league with a jump of 6-5. Enunwa also visited Washington State.
