His best game as a Colonial came at North Alabama on October 16, where he had 8 receptions for 103 yards, the first of two games over the century mark for Robert Morris this season.

After D’Andre Hicks’ departure, Westry was expected to be the number one target for Bernard Clark and RMU, but after the announcement Wednesday, the team has a big hole to fill for this upcoming fall.
