Pac-10 Position Breakdown: Running Back – Oregon State Beavers

By Sam Saig, July 10, 2009 7:09 pm

On September 6th 2008, Oregon State head coach Mike Riley watched helplessly as Penn State hammered the Beavers 45-14. Rarely can something good come out of such an embarrassing defeat, but OSU’s offensive strategy changed from that point forward. Riley realized that he had to put the ball in the hands of a 5-7 190-pound freshman as much as possible, and that’s exactly what he did.

Super sophomore Jacquizz Rodgers enters 2009 on just about every pre-season award list imaginable. The Richmond (TX) native is a Doak Walker Award candidate, a pre-season All-American, and he’s being mentioned on most pre-season Heisman watch lists.

The highly entertaining Rodgers is coming off of a fantastic freshman season where he ran for 1,253 yards and 11 touchdowns despite not playing a full season. He averaged 113.9 rushing yards per game, finishing second in the Pac-10 and 12th nationally.

He also caught 29 passes for 247 yards and one touchdown. Rodgers became the Pac-10’s all-time leading rusher among freshmen, as well as becoming the first freshman in conference history to win the Pac-10 Offensive Player of the Year Award. Almost every major publication in the country named Rodgers a Freshman All-American at the end of the season. He was a third team All-American selection by the Associated Press and Rivals.com.
