He tied the ODU single-game record for catches with 12 against UTEP, and his 231 receiving yards against Charlotte was the most by an ODU receiver against an FBS opponent, and the most since Nick Mayers’ 271 against New Hampshire in 2012.

Pascal joins Nick Clarke (Rimington Trophy) and TJ Ricks (Butkus, Nagurski) on preseason award watch lists so far this preseason.
