A native of Ellerbe, N.C., Waddell is currently tied for first in the nation in kickoff returns with a 31.7-yard average. After sitting out his first season at Carolina as a partial qualifier in 1999, Waddell graduated prior to the 2003 season and earned back his final year of eligibility. He finished the 2003 season with 25 kickoff returns for 475 yards, including a 97-yard for a touchdown at Wisconsin. He also was first on the team in punt returns, averaging 14.5 yards, a mark that would have ranked first in the ACC if he had had enough attempts.
Wilson rebounded from a difficult season in 2002 to start all 12 games in 2003. A native of Chesapeake, Va., Wilson helped Carolina lead the league with an average of 4.7 yards per rush.
Slowed by a severe viral illness early in the season and a calf strain late in the year, Blizzard finished the season with 20 receptions for 161 yards and one touchdown.
