During his career at the University of New Mexico, wide receiver Dwight Counter established himself as one of the most explosive players ever to don the cherry and silver. Now a rookie wideout for the Rio Grande Valley Dorados in the Arena Football League 2, Counter is still turning heads with his play. The Lancaster, Texas native has emerged as one of the Dorados' top offensive threats and turned in his best game as a professional on May 2, notching 10 catches for a franchise record 185 yards and four touchdowns in the team's 77-69 loss to Bossier-Shreveport.
