Inman's big day a dream come true

Senior wide receiver Dontrelle Inman always had wondered what it felt like to score a collegiate touchdown. Entering Saturday's game against Virginia Military Institute, Inman had not graced the end zone with his presence in four years with the Cavaliers.

That dry spell ended just more than four minutes into the game Saturday. Fifth-year quarterback Marc Verica pulled down a high shotgun snap from the 25-yard-line and fired a pass to Inman, who weaved his way around three would-be tacklers and into the end zone for his first career touchdown.

With just more than nine minutes remaining in the second quarter, Verica found Inman again for an eight-yard touchdown pass.

The Keydets kept one safety close to the line of scrimmage for most of the first half and seemed intent on stopping Virginia's rushing attack. They succeeded in that regard, but Verica (16 for 23, 224 yards, three touchdowns) had little trouble finding open targets through the air. One of those targets was Inman, who caught five passes for 72 yards and those two long-sought touchdowns.

"It was wonderful," Inman said of his first score. "It's a feeling that (pause) I really can't explain what type of feeling it is. It was so exciting. I've dreamed for it for a while, three years now, and it's came. So now it's here and now it's behind me, so I'm looking forward to Florida State and making more plays."

Inman has 15 receptions and 214 receiving yards through three games this season. He ranks behind only junior wideout Kris Burd in both categories. Burd -- who caught eight passes for 119 yards and a touchdown Saturday -- leads the team with 18 receptions, 260 receiving yards and three touchdown catches.
