  • TEENAGE
  • 2007
    Age 20
    Javorski's most memorable moment came in the 2007 Alamo Bowl against Penn St. when Lane did not receive the ball on a critical 4th and 1 in which the Aggies failed to convert.
    More Details Hide Details Once new head coach Mike Sherman took over, Lane was moved to fullback. Sherman told Lane of the position change prior to his press conference where he was officially announced as the new A&M coach. Sherman stated: "When I came in, my press conference obviously I met with the team. Jorvorskie was in class during that time. But he came up to me shortly before my press conference, introduced himself, and at that time I told him, you're going to be a fullback. And there was no hemming or hawing about it. He didn't seem totally pleased with it but didn't balk at it necessarily." He also noted that Lane's weight has always been a problem. Sherman had wanted Lane in the 260s once the season starts. In Sherman's offensive system, the fullback catches passes. Lane also needed to block for starting tailback Mike Goodson, especially since the offensive line is inexperienced.
    Prior to the 2007 season, Lane slimmed down to 268 pounds, compared to the 282 pounds he weighed at the end of the 2006 season.
    More Details Hide Details The team finished the season with a 7–5 record. Over those 7 wins, Jorvorskie scored 15 total touchdowns, and compiled at least 100 rushing yards three times.
