WCU Football: "Position by Position Review" - Running Backs
With a heavy emphasis on the running game in the new "pistol" offense, several new faces join veteran Michael Johnson in the backfield this season. Johnson, the 2009 SoCon Freshman of the Year, is joined by redshirt sophomore Joe Korac (moved from TE), as well as junior transfer Michael Vaughn and true freshmen Petey Boone and Shaun Warren.
The Cats averaged 107.3 yards rushing per game last season (last in the SoCon) but up nearly 25 yards per game over the previous season. The Cats plan to make substantial improvements in this area of the game.
