Running Backs Coach Ron Brown talked about the return of freshmen running Braylon Heard. Brown hopes that the young backs will continue to get some work to lessen the load for Rex Burkhead. Brown said the younger backs are progressing, of course there is still plenty that they need to work, but Brown says they are building packages to get those guys involved. It’s really a matter of how the flow of the game is going. If they are throwing the ball more, using one back formations, Burkhead will be the guy, but if they have two or three back sets, we’ll see more of the freshmen.
