2014: Running Backs

Virginia Tech needs more production from the tailback position in 2014 if they hope to field a successful offense.  Today we’ll take a look at Shane Beamer’s returning personnel in the offensive backfield.

Tech’s production from the running back position hasn’t been impressive the last two seasons.

2012: 295 carries, 1258 yards, 4.26 ypc, 9 TD
2013: 291 carries, 1168 yards, 4.01 ypc, 13 TD

Shane Beamer couldn’t settle on a tailback in 2012.  It’s easy to blame him for that, and even he admits that he needed to do a better job.  However, when none of your players are standing out above the others, it’s difficult to make a decision.
