Default Another reminder of HB Will Johnson

Saw this youtube stuff recently and was impressed with how hard he is working. Maybe all athletes train this hard and I just don't see it, but I think he has a real good shot at being the lone H-back standing come September. Very Strong, Fast, and great hands. I think this guy is going to come in and seize the opportunity.

I doubt it. He never ran the ball once in college.

Here are his career totals from 2007 - 2010 at WVU...

25 rec. for 249 yards and 4 TDs
0 rushing atts.

Unless there is another 4 year player with the same name at WVU

I don't mean HB (halfback) I mean H-back. David Johnson has never run the ball either. He would block and catch the occasional pass, but never run.

Sorry to disagree but although it seems he has run the bowl at some point in his career here, the stats show he never has (assuming we are talking about David Johnson)

he certainly wont be the h-back, but he has been working all off season as if he is still on the 53 man roster.
