Darius Anderson is really starting to come on in his second season as a Horned Frog. Anderson rushed 14 times for 89 yards and two touchdowns against the Mustangs. He also had a third touchdown called back due to a receiver not being lined up on the line of scrimmage. Anderson got the majority of the carries in the second half after Kyle Hicks went down with an injury and was a catalyst for the offense.

Second Star

Kenedy Snell - Running Back
