Chad Scott Breaks Down the Running Backs

Despite Leddie Brown graduating out of the program and incoming Clemson transfer Lynn-J Dixon leaving the program over the summer, running backs coach Chad Scott likes his depth in the room.

The West Virginia offense will have a new starting running back this fall with Tony Mathis Jr. expected to take the bulk of the carries the season after Brown was the face of the WVU rushing attack the last three seasons.

Entering his fourth season, Mathis is primed for a breakout season. In the season finale at Kansas, he ran for a career-high 122 yards on the afternoon, including a moment in the fourth quarter where Mathis stayed on the field from the direction of Leddie Brown in the waning moments of the game, after bursting for a 45 yard, and continued to pound the rock for over four minutes of game clock.
