HONOLULU (HawaiiNewsNow) - There's no doubt that Ashley Lelie and Davone Bess are two of the best receivers in the history of Warrior football.

That's the company that Greg Salas has quickly elevated himself into this season.

Salas -- who is second in the nation with 1,559 receiving yards needs 155 more to break Lelei's single season mark.

While he never played with the former NFL 1st-Rounder, he did share some time with Bess, who's caught more passes in one season than any other warrior at 108.

"It's great to be mentioned with those guys," says Salas, "Those are crazy numbers. I never really thought I'd be doing this good at the beginning of the season."

Rewriting Hawaii's receiving records is nothing new to Greg.

In November Salas broke Bess' mark for catches in a game with 16.

"I never keep track of it in the game," admits Salas. "It's just too hard.You're not really thinking ok I have 1-catch 2-catches. Maybe if you're not catching the ball at all. If you're consistently catching the ball you're not thinking about how many catches you have."

Still that doesn't mean a little extra incentive to the man slinging the pigskin wouldn't be beneficial. Warrior Quarterback Bryant Moniz says he's not looking for, but wouldn't turn down any extra incentives.

"Maybe I'll have to get a plate(lunch) of something...we'll see," joked Moniz." Maybe he can take me out to the movies this Friday. (laughs)
