D.J. Monroe Finds His Groove

Updated: Saturday, August 3 2013, 10:47 PM CDT
D.J. Monroe first introduced himself with an 89-yard touchdown kickoff return in 2009.

"To be honest with you, it just seems like yesterday," says Monroe.

That was then and ever since -- longhorns fans are still waiting for his breakout season. As a fifth-year senior, Monroe's a mystery. So much talent, so few touches.
 
"He see's the big picture," says Texas offensive lineman Trey Hopkins. "He sees, 'this is what the team needs, the coaches need.' He's willing to take the back seat sometimes."

But when his number's called, Monroe takes advantage. He's scored in every game this season.

"When he gets the ball in his hand, he's going to do whatever he has to do, claw scratch to make a play for us," says Hopkins.

"D.J has been a driving player," says UT wide receiver Mike Davis. "Always confident, tough. He runs like he's 200 pounds."
 
Throughout his career, Monroe has been a man of many talents. From wide receiver to running back and back to receiver.

"I've accepted my role as a player on the team," says Monroe. "At this point I'm just doing whatever it takes to win, not really worry about the whole position thing."

But as a kick returner, D.J. has more than proven he's worthy. Against Oklahoma State he ran back his third touchdown on a return, the most in school history.

"I'm so proud for him and of him," says Texas head coach Mack Brown. "He's really helping our football team. What a great run that was."

And now as Monroe's run in Austin ends, the fifth-year senior is finally giving UT fans some answers.
