Westmoore to use running back by committee

by Trent Shadid Published: August 26, 2014

After featuring mostly a one-running back offense last season, Westmoore will transition to using a multitude of players at the position in 2014.

Coach Adam Gaylor expects to have Terrel Skinner and Mike Hotchkins take over most of the carries, and says standout receivers Stephan Robinson and DeShawn Lookout will also appear in the backfield.

“We’re going to do it by committee,” Gaylor said. “We’ve got a bunch of good backs. We don’t just have one guy, and I think that’s what works today. I don’t think you can have just one guy anymore.”

Quarterback Bryson Lee, who had eight rushing touchdowns last season, says he also expects to take on a more expanded role in the running game.

The Jaguars’ running game fell largely on graduated running back Kieron Hardrick last season as he rushed for 1,175 yards and 16 touchdowns.
