    Albert Young has eye on an expanded role

    Albert Young has eye on an expanded role in offense

    Young is not only ahead of Ryan Moats, Ian Johnson and injured Darius Reynaud (sprained ankle) in the race for the third job, but he also appears to have moved past Gerhart and would be second on the depth chart....

    This is for sure one of the most intriguing battles for a spot, i think our backfield will be in great shape come the season whoever wins the role so may the best man win!

    I hope so too. People don't realize what a big, big loss Chester Taylor was.

    For sure, CT was reliable/dependable as a 3rd down back.. it's no secret that we need AP to step up on his pass blocking now that he doesn't have CT to do the 'dirty work'.

    Good!! Hope it sticks that way

    He's always impressed me.. And i'd like to like Gerhart learn a bit and play spot duty like Albert did

    Kinda felt he was gonna be our second and I was excited.. Reminded me of CT kind of

    Albert Young impresses me so I'm not that surprised that he is doing well. Toby missed a lot of camps this year because of the rules with the NCAA. This is a great battle and hopefully one of them can step up and fill in CTs shoes. They are very big shoes to fill. My big hope is AP worked on his reads and blocking.
