Adam Muema (Junior) : 237 attempts for 1458 yards and 16 touchdowns. Muema was the perfect replacement for Ronnie Hillman last season as he averaged 6.15 yards per carry and 112.15 yards per game. Muema is one of the best running backs in the Mountain West Conference and has been named to the Doak Walker Awards list. The Doak Walker Award honors the United States’s top college football running back.
Chase Price (Sophomore) 29 attempts for 114 yards and one touchdown. Price averaged 3.93 yards per carry last season. Price was the fourth string running back for the Aztecs last season. Price will be the second string running back for SDSU this season.
Dwayne Garrett (Sophomore): Garrett seven attempts for 30 yards and zero touchdowns. Garrett averaged 4.29 yards per carry last season. Garrett was the third string running back for the Aztecs last season. Garrett will be the third string running back for SDSU this season.
De’Saan Hardwick (Sophomore) Hardwick has not seen any playing time at San Diego State. Hardwick is one of the faster SDSU running backs. I do not think Hardwick will see playing time this fall.
