Today we will continue our positional previews during our countdown to the start of fall practices.

The running backs at Greenville College have some large shoes to fill. Those shoes belong to two time UMAC Offensive Player of the Year Anthony Ambers.

Three returners and six new players will try and step up to the challenge. Sophomores Immanuel Gambel (St. Louis, MO), Bryce Wright (Surprise, AZ) and Justin HoneyCutt (Wabash, IN) all look to separate themselves from the pack.

Freshman Michael Bryant (Mt. Vernon, IL), Daniel Courtway (Festus, MO), Bobby Hughley (New York, New York), Andrew Perkett (Colorado Springs, CO), Sean Snyder (Fox River Grove, IL) and transfer SO Anthony Moore (Troup, TX) will all look to find a role and compete on Saturdays.

Running backs coach Andrew Rode was asked about how he felt about the 2011 group he had,

I am excited to coach these guys. The returners we have are all super talented and could be big time contributors for us. This group of new guys is extremely talented and I wouldn’t be surprised to see someone emerge from that group.”
