Colorado State Football 2012: Back Up Running Backs Turn Heads

With junior running back Chris Nwoke not participating in Colorado State's scrimmage, Rams head coach Jim McElwain was able to get plenty of looks at Colorado State's backup running backs.

McElwain came away pleased with what he saw, as freshmen Donnell Alexander and Tommy Morris, along with junior Joe Brown and walk-on senior Mark Woodbury all received carries carries at running back.

Brown ran for 54 yards and a touchdown on 18 carries and also caught three passes for 38 yards, according to statistics provided by the school's sports information office.

"He became the emergency tailback," McElwain said. "And you know what? I'm kind of excited to see the film, because it looked like he made some pretty good cuts, and he does know how to run behind his pads."

McElwain also came away impressed with the wide receivers, with freshman Joe Hansley grabbing nine catches for 69 yards standing out, while senior Lou Greenwood hauled in seven passes for 89 yards.
