Since the start of the 2022 football season, some position groups for LSU have gotten off to a bumpy start.
One group has been consistent through the Tigers’ first three games; the running backs.
The LSU running back group has been improving game by game after a strong showing v.s. Coach Kelly, Mississippi State, is confident they’ll continue moving the chains.
“Our run efficiency was better when we needed to run the football; we were able to do that, to close out the football game, said Kelly.”
The Tigers had an impressive start to SEC play as they posted 162 yards from scrimmage and averaged five yards per carry.
Every running back got their yards, including Josh Williams, who scored his first SEC touchdown.
“All that emotion of just getting in and all that effort is a great feeling. “I was glad to experience it with my teammates.”
Williams explained that the running back room isn’t just a group of rushers but a brotherhood off the field.
“We hangout outside of football,” Williams said. “It’s not just a football deal, we’ve been knowing each other for years.”
“Coach Frank (Wilson) has brought us together even more these last couple of years,” Williams said. “We’re really a tight-nit group.”
Armoni Goodwin capped off the successful rush night with a 47-yard rushing touchdown to send the Mississippi Bulldogs home packing.
The Tigers hope to continue this success against New Mexico, who has allowed less than 60 yards in two of their three games.
