There's no doubt the Mocs will have an explosive offense again this season, but UTC is invested in finding a rushing attack to compliment Jacob Huesman and Terrell Robinson.
On paper, the Mocs rushed for an impressive 167 yards a game, averaging four yards a carry.
But in 11 games, Mocs running backs topped the rushing category only twice, with Kendrix Huitt's 139 yards against Western Carolina marking the only 100 yard game by a UTC running back last year.
In fact, Mocs quarterbacks accounted for well over half of Chattanooga's rushing yards last season. As Marquis Green and Keon Williams continue to shine early on, Coach Russ Huesman thinks that will change this year.
"They are doing things the right way, looks like they are working harder than they have. We've had an issue with their work ethic and their commitment to it. I think they have committed to being great players, so I've been pleased with their progress so far," said Huesman.
"I've still got a lot more to go, but I feel like I'm running behind my pads more, getting back to the way I was my freshman year, more of a bruiser," added Mocs running back Keon Williams. The Mocs open their season on Thursday, August 29th against UT-Martin
