  2022 PRESEASON STATS PERFORM FCS THIRD TEAM ALL-AMERICAN: AP - Narii Gaither, 5-10, 181, senior, Gardner-Webb,...Gaither (Rock Hill, S.C. / Rock Hill HS) added to a growing list of preseason honors, earning a spot as an all-purpose back. The 5-foot-10, 181-pound dynamo is one of the top dual threats in the country, capable of dominating a game on the ground or through the air. He is one of only two backs returning for 2022 who led their team in both rushing yards and receptions.

Gaither, who played in only nine full games, carried 178 times for 991 yards and seven touchdowns - while leading the Big South with 5.6 yards per carry. He also led GWU with 42 catches for 351 yards and five scores, and had two games with at least 10 receptions late in the season. Gaither recorded a pair of 150-yard rushing games, doing so in just over a half of action against Campbell. He has recorded back-to-back Big South rushing titles, and has carried for 1,454 career yards in only 26 games - with much of that damage coming over the past 12 games. - Gardner-Webb Football

  2022 PRESEASON WALTER PAYTON AWARD WATCH LIST: RB Narii Gaither, Gardner-Webb, Sr., 5-10, 181,...Gaither, who has garnered significant preseason plaudits over the past three weeks, enters his senior season poised for even greater heights. The Rock Hill, S.C., native has won back-to-back Big South Conference rushing titles, is a two-time All-Big South choice and is one of only two backs returning for the 2022 season nationally to lead his team in rushing yards and receptions. Gaither played in just nine full games in 2021, but managed to produce 991 yards and seven touchdowns on 178 carries. His average of 5.6 yards per carry ranked among the nation's best and led the Big South. The 5-foot-10, 181-pounder also caught 42 passes for 351 yards and five more touchdowns.

  2022 PRESEASON ALL-BIG SOUTH CONFERENCE TEAM (COACHES/MEDIA): RB Narii Gaither, Sr., Gardner-Webb,...The All-America candidate is one of the top all-purpose backs in the country and is coming off the best season of his career. A two-time All-Big South choice, Gaither churned out 991 yards on the ground with seven scores – and also led the team with 42 catches for 351 yards and five touchdowns. The 5-foot-10, 180-pound speedster led the Big South in rushing, all-purpose yards and yards per carry last season and topped the 100-yard rushing mark in five games.

Gaither ranked No. 9 nationally in all-purpose yards and was only one of two backs to lead his team in rushing yards and receptions during the 2021 season. His best game of the season came in a narrow loss at No. 10 Kennesaw State, when he rushed 22 times for 117 yards and two touchdowns and caught a career-high 10 passes for 91 yards and the go-ahead score with just 43 seconds left in the game. He followed with 210 all-purpose yards at Hampton and closed with 185 all-purpose yards and two receiving touchdowns in the season finale win at North Carolina A&T. - Gardner-Webb Football

  2022 PRESEASON BIG SOUTH OFFENSIVE PLAYER OF THE YEAR (COACHES/MEDIA): Narii Gaither, Sr., RB, Gardner-Webb (Rock Hill, S.C.),...Gaither is Gardner-Webb's first Big South preseason Offensive Player of the Year honoree since 2017 (QB Tyrell Maxwell) and just the second overall. A First-Team All-Conference performer in 2021, Gaither led the Big South last season with 991 rushing yards and 132.8 all-purpose yards per game. He ranked ninth nationally in all-purpose yards, and led the Runnin' Bulldogs with 42 receptions -- just one of two running backs in the country to lead his team in rushing yards and receptions.

Gaither scored 12 total touchdowns a season ago (seven rushing, five receiving), had a league-leading five games with 100+ rushing yards, as well as two games with more than 200 all-purpose yards. He enters this season needing 521 rushing yards for 2,000 in his career, and 37 catches to break the Big South career record for most receptions by a running back. Gaither received six first-place votes and 27 total points in the Preseason Offensive Player of the Year voting, ahead of Campbell quarterback Hajj-Malik Williams (two first-place votes and 18 points) and Robert Morris running back Alijah Jackson (one first-place vote and 13 points). - Big South Football

  If Gardner-Webb could go back in time, it might bring its 2022 offensive unit with them. Particularly to Sept. 7, 2013, at Joan C. Edwards Stadium, where it ran into a buzz saw in the Thundering Herd, dropping the contest 55-0 in their only meeting in program history. One thing the Bulldogs lacked in that game is exactly one of their biggest strengths in 2022: an offense with plenty of experienced firepower. But can Gardner-Webb turn that potential into results by the time it arrives in Huntington in Week 5 of the college football season? If a senior quarterback, running-back duo and a highly touted 2022 recruiting class have anything to say about it, the answer might be a resounding "Yes."

The offense starts with Bailey Fisher, who completed nearly 60% of his throws in 2021, amassing 2,300 yards and tossing 18 touchdowns over the course of 11 games last season. His top wideout, sophomore Justin Franklin, is also back in 2022 looking to build off a freshman season in which he established himself as the Bulldogs' top receiver. Throw in Narii Gaither, a senior running back who was the team's workhorse in the backfield, and there's plenty to be excited about on the offensive side of the football. Gaither racked up 1,034 yards and seven touchdowns on the ground to go with a team-high 43 receptions and another five trips across the goal line. Without a doubt, Gaither is their go-to weapon. - Charleston Gazette

The 5-foot-10, 177-pound speedster carried 178 times for 990 yards and seven touchdowns - also leading the circuit with 5.6 yards per carry. The junior led Gardner-Webb with 42 catches for 351 yards and five more touchdowns, proving himself as one of the top all-purpose backs in the country. He ranked No. 9 nationally during the regular season and led the Big South with 132.7 all-purpose yards per game and averaged 140.9 all-purpose yards per game against league competition. - Gardner-Webb Football
