Receptions, Career

Amidon came into the year 13th on the school's all-time career receptions list, amassing 114 catches for 1,773 yards and 10 touchdowns over 3 seasons. With another 38 catches already this season, Amidon has jumped nine spots to fourth all time. He trails only Rich Gunnell (181), Pete Mitchell (190, typo?) and Mike Chmura (164).

1. Rich Gunnell (2006-09) - 181 - 2,459 - 18
2. Pete Mitchell (1991-94) - 190 - 2,388 - 20
3. Mark Chmura (1987-91) - 164 - 2,046 - 11
4. Alex Amidon (2010-pres.) - 152 - 2,315 - 13
5. Brandon Robinson (2005-08) - 141 - 2,023 - 10

At his current clip, Amidon will become the school's career leader in receptions during Boston College's game at Maryland. He's projected to finish his career with 190 total receptions.

Receptions, Season

Amidon already holds the single-season school record for most receptions in a season, catching 78 balls last year for 1,210 yards. Currently on pace to finish with 76 catches, Amidon can finish 1 AND 2 in this statistical category all-time.

1. Alex Amidon (2012) - 78
2. Andre Callender 2007 - 76
3. Tom Waddle (1988) - 70
4t. Pete Mitchell (1993) - 66
4t. Brian Brennan (1983) - 66

Receptions, Game

Earlier this season, Amidon tied the school record for most receptions in a single game, hauling in 13 catches for 146 yards in the season opening win over Villanova. Amidon previous hit the 10 catch mark twice -- in losses to Miami and Wake Forest in 2012.

1t. Andre Callender (2007) - 13 vs. Virginia Tech (ACC Champ.)
1t. Pete Mitchell (1993) - 13 vs. Notre Dame

Receiving Yardage, Career

Amidon came into the season ranked 12th on the career receiving record list with 1,773 yards. He's since jumped all the way to fourth halfway through his senior season.

1. Rich Gunnell (2006-09) - 2,459
2. Pete Mitchell (1991-94) - 2,388
3. Kelvin Martin (1983-86) - 2,337
4. Alex Amidon (2010-pres.) - 2,315
5. Brian Brennan (1980-83) - 2,180

Amidon is just 144 shy of former Eagle and current offensive graduate assistant Rich Gunnell's career record of 2,459 set from 2006-09. He's on pace to break that record during Boston College's home game vs. Virginia Tech.

Receiving Yardage, Season

Amidon already owns the school's single-season receiving yards record with 1,215 yards last season. That bested the former record held by Brian Brennan (1,149 yards during the 1983 season). Amidon's 547 yards projected out over the final six games of the season would also place him third on this list.

1. Alex Amidon (2012) - 1,215
2. Brian Brennan (1993) - 1,149
3. Kelvin Martin (1985) - 958
4. Rich Gunnell (2007) - 931
5. Tom Waddle (1988) - 902

Passing Yardage, Game

With 193 yards receiving in last year's loss to Clemson, Amidon ranks third on the school's all-time single-game receiving list.

1. Scott Nizolek (1982) - 229 yards vs. Penn State
2. Gerard Phelan (1984) - 226 vs. Miami
3. Alex Amidon (2012) - 193 vs. Clemson
4. Brian Brennan (1983) - 185 vs. Temple
5. Dedrick Dewalt (2000) - 183 vs. Pittsburgh

While it seems unlikely that Amidon will break this record with just six games to play, consider that Syracuse currently has the nation's 103rd ranked pass defense, surrendering 267.7 yards a game through the air. The Orange have also yet to play Florida State and Maryland this season. Good luck with that.

Passing Yardage, Play

Amidon has gone over the 60+ yard mark just three times in his career, but twice in as many weeks. He caught a 68-yard pass vs. Army and followed that up with a 69-yard TD grab in the loss to Clemson. Still, Amidon's 69-yard career-best isn't enough to place on the school's all-time record list here. Dedrick Dewalt owns the school record with a 97-yard reception in a 1999 game vs. Virginia Tech.

1. Dedrick Dewalt (1999) - 97 yards vs. Virginia Tech
2. Tom Joe Sullivan (1957) - 92 vs. Navy
3. Troy Stradford (1986) - 90 vs. Maryland
4. Mel Briggs (1973) - 85 vs. Pittsburgh
5t. Mel Briggs (1972) - 83 vs. Penn State
5t. Kenrick Skerritt (1989) - 83 vs. West Virginia
7t. Francis Marr (1953) - 80 vs. Xavier
7t. Jon Schoen (1982) - 80 vs. Holy Cross

Touchdown Receptions, Career

Amidon started the season tied for 18th on the school's all-time list with 10 TD grabs. Throw in another 3 and Amidon is now in sole possession of ninth on this list. He won't catch Kelvin Martin (28 TDs from 1983-86) but, while unlikely could finish as high as a tie for second on this list with another seven TD grabs.

1. Kelvin Martin (1983-86) - 28
2t. Dedrick Dewalt (1998-01) - 20
2t. Pete Mitchell (1991-94) - 20
4. Rich Gunnell (2006-09) - 18
5. Jamal Burke (1999-2002) - 16
6t. Grant Adams (2001-04) - 14
6t. Brian Brennan (1980-83) - 14
6t. Darren Flutie (1984-87) - 14
9. Alex Amidon (2010-pres.) - 13

Touchdown Receptions, Season

Amidon's 2011 TD output ranks tied for ninth on the school's all-time list. With only 3 TD grabs through the first six games of the season, it appears unlikely that Amidon will threaten Kelvin Martin's school record of 10 TDs during the 1984 season.

1. Kelvin Martin (1984) - 10
2. Kelvin Martin (1985) - 9
3t. Jamal Burke (2001) - 8
3t. Dedrick Dewalt (2000) - 8
3t. Kelvin Martin (1986) - 8
3t. Brian Brennan (1983) - 8
3t. Mel Briggs (1972) - 8
3t. John Bonistalli (1969) - 8
9t. Alex Amidon (2012) - 7
9t. Rich Gunnell 2009
9t. Anthony DiCosmo 1998
9t. Pete Mitchell (1993) - 7
9t. Pete Mitchell (1994) - 7
9t. Barry Gallup (1968) - 7
9t. Darren Flutie (1987) - 7
9t. Art Graham (1962) - 7

Touchdown Receptions, Game

Surprisingly Amidon has never had more than a single TD grab in any game in his career. The school record is 3 set by five different individuals over the years. Have to think this record is safe from Alex's assault on the record book.

1t. Kelvin Martin (1986) - 3 vs. Holy Cross
1t. Peter Laboy (1977) - 3 vs. Army
1t. George Gill (1970) - 3 vs. Holy Cross
1t. John Bonistalli (1969) - 3 vs. VMI
1t. Jim Whalen (1962) - 3 vs. Boston U.

100 Yard Games, Season

Amidon already owns this record with 6 100-yard games last season, tying Brian Brennan's record. He can match last year's total with 3 more 100-yard games over the final six games of the season and can take ownership of the record all by himself with four more 100-yard games.

1t. Alex Amidon (2012) - 6
1t. Brian Brennan (1983) - 6
3t. Rich Gunnell (2009) - 4
3t. Darren Flutie (1987) - 4
5t. Brandon Robinson (2007) - 3
5t. Will Blackmon (2005) - 3
5t. Dedrick Dewalt (2000) - 3
5t. Clarence Cannon (1993) - 3
5t. Tom Waddle (1988) - 3
5t. Gerard Phelan (1984) - 3
5t. Alex Amidon (2013) - 3

100 Yard Games, Career

Once again, Amidon owns the school record for most 100-yard games in a career with 10. He entered the season in second place with 7 and broke the school record with 122 yards in the win over Army. With six games to go, Amidon can put some series distance between himself and the rest of the list before it's all said and done.

1. Alex Amidon (2010-pres.) - 10
2t. Brian Brennan (1980-83) - 8
2t. Rich Gunnell (2006-09) - 8
4. Pete Mitchell (1991-94) - 6
5t. Brandon Robinson (2005-08) - 5
5t. Darren Flutie (1984-87) - 5
5t. Kelvin Martin (1983-86) - 5
8t. Dedrick Dewalt (1998-2001) - 4
8t. Anthony DiCosmo (1996-98) - 4
8t. Tom Waddle (1985-88) - 4
