If he was a black running back in the military I guarantee he would get a legitimate shot to be drafted as an nfl rb with those stats!Fan of his as well! He deserves more National attention and a legit shot in The NFL. Just don't see him getting a fair shake, though he could make noise as an UDFA. A combine invite would go a long ways towards his NFL prospects.
One of my favorite college football running backs who I don't get to see play much is Brad Roberts. This young
man is now the 4th leading rusher in all of the NCAA. He is less than 50 yards from being the number 2 rusher
in the nation. I doubt he can catch Chase Brown of Illinois but you never know? This kid is amazing. We should
be talking about him alot more on this board.
The big question is would the nfl give him a chance despite playing for Air Force when he is allowed to sign?
below i’ll link a complimentary article on Air Force’s Brad Roberts after his dominating performance against UNLV last week. to summarize:
Roberts scored 4 touchdowns, carried the ball 29 times including on 11-straight plays including a score on the opening drive of the second half, and ran for 144 yards. he was recognized as the Mountain West player of the week for the third time this season for the performance.
this was his second-consecutive 29-carry game, however, and the staff is worried about over using him. he’s had 101 carries in the last 4 games.
Brad Roberts earned Mountain West player of the week honors on Monday after he ran for 144 yards and four touchdowns in a victory at UNLV.gazette.com
Thanks JimmyC for the new development Joey Rosa getting his 1st start! That's really what sets CF site apart! Y'all are on top of it!i shared several posts last night from the GA State @ App State contest, as it had two White running backs make good showings.
i don’t want to re-post here and break intrawebs protocol, but mayhap RockyB or TwentyTwo can recap it.
Tucker Gregg looked dominant for GA State but had his own team freeze him out (to their detriment), while App State’s Anderson Castle made an appearance late and made quite a splash.
Tucker had 11-93 8.5 ypc
Black qb had 19-90 4.7 ypc (9-23 for 73 yards passing and a int)
Black backups combined for 11-35 3.18 ypc
His coaches are real geniuses!
Yes indeed Bucky & El GringoGood to see 2 White RBs making noise in The dark Sun Belt! Castle should be in line for more carries down the line, and Gregg should be on a 53 man NFL Roster.
