UW This Season: - Malcom Floyd has already placed himself among the greatest receivers in University of Wyoming school history. He enters his senior season ranked No. 8 in career receptions at UW with 123, and he needs only 15 more receiving yards to move into the UW career Top 10 in that category. Floyd has sometimes been overshadowed by his wide receiver running mate and fellow senior Ryan McGuffey. But as a sophomore in 2001, Floyd began to attract the attention he deserves. Both the Football News and The Sporting News selected Floyd as a First Team All-Mountain West Conference selection in 2001. He, McGuffey and current sophomore Jovon Bouknight will be the starting receiving trio in 2003. That group should form one of, if not the best receiving corps in the Mountain West Conference. Will begin the 2003 season having caught at least one pass in 31 consecutive games. He has caught at least one pass in all but one game of his career (vs. Central Michigan as a freshman in 2000).

2002: Floyd caught 27 passes for 427 yards as a junior. His average of 15.8 yards per catch was tops on the team. His best game of the season came in a 34-26 upset of No. 19 ranked Air Force. Floyd caught six passes for 92 yards against the Falcons to lead the Cowboys in receiving yards. One of his six catches went for a 58-yard touchdown. He also had a 67-yard TD reception against Central Michigan in the second game of the season.

2001: Floyd led the Cowboys in total receiving yards in 2001, with 790 yards, and in touchdown receptions, with four. He ranked 50th in the nation in total receiving yards (790), 52nd in average receiving yards per game (71.82) and 56th in receptions (4.82 catches per game). In Mountain West Conference rankings, Floyd was fourth in both receiving yards per game (71.82) and receptions (4.82). He started 10 of 11 games, and the only game he didn't start was due to the Cowboys beginning the Texas A&M game with a two tight end set. During the 2001 season, Floyd recorded three 100-yard games -- 138 at Utah State, 101 vs. New Mexico and 136 at Air Force.

2000: Floyd enjoyed one of the best seasons ever by a freshman receiver at UW. He caught 43 passes, which ranked second in UW school history to fellow redshirt freshman Ryan McGuffey, who caught 63. Floyd's 43 catches bettered the freshman seasons of such former Wyoming greats as Ryan Yarborough (25 freshman catches), Wendell Montgomery (25) and Marcus Harris (1). Floyd totalled 360 receiving yards as a freshman, while starting seven games.

1999: Redshirted. High School: Turned in an outstanding football career at River City High School in Sacramento, Calif., playing for coach Dennis McIntyre. Was named the Offensive MVP for his league, and was a Sacramento All-Metro selection as a senior. Played wide receiver and safety, as well as returned punts and kickoffs. Also lettered in basketball, and was first-team all-league in that sport. Was very active in the community, working as secretary for the Seavey Circle Youth Group, and was active in a number of fund-raising efforts for civic projects. Also recruited by Colorado State, Nevada, Oregon, San Jose State and Stanford.

Personal: Born Sept. 8, 1981, in Sacramento, Calif. One of three sons of Lea and James Floyd of Sacramento. His brother (also named Malcom) played at Fresno State, then went on to play for the Houston Oilers from 1994 through 1997. Majoring in health sciences and would like to be a doctor.
