A three-year letterman at the University of Hawaii (2005-07), Bess started in all 39 contests in which he appeared, recording 293 receptions for 3,610 yards with 41 touchdowns. His 293 catches were a school and conference record as he was a first-team All-Western Athletic Conference selection each season. He is the only player in Warriors history to record three 1,000-yard receiving seasons as he set a school and conference records for games with a touchdown reception (29). His 41 career touchdown catches also set a school record.

A native of Oakland, California, the 5-10, 190-pound Bess attended Skyline High School, where he lettered in football, baseball and basketball. Off the field, he has established “The Bess Route Foundation”, which is dedicated to shaping positive lifestyles for underprivileged children and providing funds for families in need.
