(Jr.) Ford broke his collarbone early in his junior year but he rushed for 567 yards and four scores in four games. He said the injury is 100 percent healed and he is looking forward to a big senior year.

(So.) He didn’t take over as the No. 1 back until a little less than midway through the year but still finished with 1,339 yards and 18 scores while averaging over seven yards a carry.
