As the Miami Dolphins' all-time leader in receiving yardage, No. 2 in receptions and No. 3 in receiving touchdowns, Mark Duper knows about playing the position. So when some of Leonard Hankerson's uncles learned that their employer was a close friend of Duper's, they asked if the three-time Pro Bowler would tutor the young wideout, a rising junior at Miami.
"We had a goal of catching 10,000 balls over the summer before his senior year, and he did it," said Doucett, a lifelong Redskins fan who hosted Hankerson's draft party and adorned him in the Redskins' cap and Joe Theismann jersey that appeared in photos.
"We worked even harder, sometimes twice a week," Doucett said. "The Miami coaches invited me in to work out with him as much as we wanted. We set goals of 60 catches, 1,100 yards and nine touchdowns, and he surpassed them."
