College Football: Running back imperative to State's offense

By ISHMAEL JOHNSON
Sports Editor

A main staple of recent Texas State teams has been running back.

Not this year — at least not yet.

Transitioning from Marcus Curry to Terrence Franks to Robert Lowe and Chris Nutall gave Texas State’s offense, no matter who was behind center, a sense of stability. Fans knew that above all else, they’d be able to run the football.

One of head coach Everett Withers’ and offensive coordinator Brett Elliott’s first tests is to find a workhorse to replace Lowe, the program’s fourth all-time leading rusher.

By now, most of you know that today is my final day at the San Marcos Daily Record.

But, before I leave you, I figured I'd come up with five predictions, some of which are bold, for the upcoming year. Here goes:

1. The Rattlers will challenge Bowie for the district title in football. 
In its preseason prognostications for District 14-6A, Dave Campbell's Texas Football had Austin-Bowie as the champion of the league followed by San Marcos. 

I agree with DCTF.

More is not always better.

Quality over quantity.

Whatever phrase works for you, that’s head coach Everett Withers’ apparent strategy when it comes to quarterbacks.

Inoke Langi’s first season at a skill position could be a big one.

At least according to the Polynesian Football Hall of Fame who named Langi to the 2016 Polynesian College Football Player of the Year Award Watch List. 38 players of Polynesian decent were selected from 24 different Football Bowl Subdivision programs including Langi. The award is given to the most outstanding Polynesian college football player that “epitomizes great ability and integrity.”

Outdoors: Local shop offers several gun courses

Guns in our country are really in the spotlight. Fear is a big factor among many now in our society — terrorism, night club mass murders, policemen being murdered, domestic violence.

Guns are not the problem.  

It is hate in the hearts of people. The murder of 84 people in Nice, France, was done with a truck.  

Maybe we should outlaw trucks.

On the Texas scene open carry is now legal if you have passed the certified concealed carry course. I’m not too excited about open carry. I think it’s primarily a macho thing.
