All-MAC First Team choice as a senior as he recorded 57 catches for a career-best 670 yards and nine touchdowns...Ranked fourth in the Mackey Award voting as a senior in 2005, finishing his career with Western Michigan with 117 receptions and 1,345 yards, ranking Scheffler second all-time in Broncos history...Third in the nation as a senior among tight ends with just over five catches per outing and was also fifth at the position in terms of yards per game (60.9)...Scheffler was also an All-MAC First Team member as a junior forthe Broncos as he placed second on the team overall with 53 receptions for 570 yards and three scores...A huge target with many talents, Scheffler can find cracks in defenses to make plays, but has to put on weight and strengthen his body to take the abuse at the next level...Outstanding baseball player in high school who turned down a contract with the New York Yankees and went on to hit nearly .300 for WMU's baseball team.
