By CSU Sports Information
CHARLESTON, S.C. – The Bucs will have plenty of options on the ground this year as they continue to strive for a balanced attack.
"We always want to have balance between our running and passing games," said Head Coach Jay Mills. "We feel like one of the areas that we can really improve this year is on the ground with Moon returning and a more veteran offensive line."
Leading the way is sophomore DeMarcus Moon, who led the team on the ground with with 382 yards on 67 carries in his freshman campaign. Moon got his first-career touchdown in just his second game, going for a 34-yard score against Johnson C. Smith.
Redshirt-freshman B.J. Hackworth was named the Most Improved Running Back during spring drills and will also battle for carries.
Freshmen Antwan Ivey, Mike Springer and Okoye Manley have also shown great promise early and will get a solid look during camp.
