 Draft Scout College Football Player News


  Fresno State running back Ronnie Rivers announced his decision to return for a second senior season on social media, and since has not talked much about it. There obviously is a lot out there for the Bulldogs' back, who is close to setting a number of school records including career touchdowns and the potential for another championship season. But from a family dynamic, what is more important: surpassing the rushing total racked up by his father, Ron, who was the all-time leading rusher at Fresno State before playing in the NFL for six seasons; or putting up numbers to a point that his little brother Devon, who just completed a dynamic sophomore season at Heritage High in Brentwood, will find them to be out of reach no matter where he decides to play his college football? "I would say both," Rivers said on Thursday at the Mountain West Conference media days.

Both at this point are possible in a Fresno State offense that returns more than 90% of its passing, rushing and receiving production. Ronnie Rivers, who was the only Fresno State player selected to the Mountain West preseason all-conference team this year, needs 844 rushing yards to match the 3,473 his father churned out from 1991 to '93. He already has scored 44 touchdowns, tied with Anthony Daigle for the most in school history, and with a solid season can end up in the Bulldogs' Top 5 for career rushing touchdowns, rushing yards and all-purpose yards. Rivers has put up those numbers despite splitting time his first two seasons with Jordan Mims and Josh Hokit - he has only 42.4% of the rushing plays by Bulldogs' running backs over his career. - Fresno Bee
