And that’s where his story took off.

Webb, now a senior at Utah State, scored his first career touchdown in Saturday’s 48-17 win over Texas San-Antonio. He arrived in Logan as a walk-on. He’s currently on scholarship. Before the season began, he was third on the depth chart. Now, he’s an integral part of Utah State’s receiver rotation.

"Bottom line, Cam is a great story," Aggie coach Gary Andersen said. "He’s someone who has worked extremely hard to get to where he is. He’s a tremendous success story, to be from Cache Valley. He’s created his own opportunity, and he’s made the most of it."

Andersen allowed Webb to walk on sight unseen in 2010, figuring his enthusiasm to be an Aggie and his local status would add intrigue to his growing program. As a junior, Webb saw action in seven games, exclusively on special teams, and didn’t make a catch.

What not many outside of the program knew was that Webb saw an opportunity to carve out a role for himself. Utah State was in desperate need for a slot receiver.Real Jordans on sale Kerwynn Williams held the position for a long time, but he was moving to running back as a starter. Eric Moats and Stanley Morrison both graduated. The staff loved JoJo Natson, but he was just a freshman.

"It was just a matter of me working hard and competing for a spot," Webb said. "There was an opportunity there."

Webb improved his speed. He got stronger, and his route running improved. He became one of the standouts of fall camp, and was awarded a scholarship two weeks before the season began.

He’s made Andersen’s belief in him pay off. Webb has 19 receptions for 207 yards this season. More importantly, he’s Utah State’s primary punt returner, bringing stability to a position that’s historically been a big problem for the Aggies.
