Kendal Briles uses Patrick Carr as his workhorse even if the stat sheet doesn’t really show it.
Carr has 58 carries in the first half of this season – just 24% of the team’s rush attempts. But 64% of his attempts come on first down. And 69% come when there’s 10+ yards to go for a first down.
Of the 98 designed runs on first down in the first 6 games, D’Eriq King has the most. But Carr has 37 (38%). These numbers show how important he is to moving this Ya Woo Cougar Offense – he’s your first down hoss.
Carr has converted 15 of his rush attempts into a first down – that leads the team (D’Eriq King is next on the team at 10).
Carr averages just 3 rush attempts per game that aren’t 10+ yards to a first down.
I like watching him run – hope we get a big dose of him this week at Navy.
