Career so Far

This Season

Eric Gray is set to start at running back in 2022, with Jovantae Barnes, Marcus Major, and Gavin Sawchuck contributing as well. An extremely solid group of walk-on backs, Tawee Walker, Jaden Knowles, and Todd Hudson will also be fighitng to play. In a new offensive system, Hudson should have more opportunities for carries in 2022.
