In 2006, he was selected as the Lone Star Conference North Division Receiver of the Year and to the First-team All-LSC-North. Recorded 51 receptions for 844 yards and 11 touchdowns and averaged 16.5 yards per catch . Byers also rushed for 182 yards on 14 carries and one touchdown, and returned six kickoffs for 113 yards.
