The Addition of Speed
Bobcat running game enhanced by a different dimension
June 28, 2006


Editor’s Note: This preview of Texas State’s running back and fullback positions is the second in a series of insights into the 2006 Texas State football season. Generally, a new feature will run each Wednesday prior to the start of preseason camp.

SAN MARCOS - When it comes to the running back position, Texas State has not had a break-away threat the past two seasons. This fall, that could all change.

Sophomore Stan Zwinggi, who returns to the running back position from receiver, has explosive speed.

Zwinggi scored on a 54-yard run against Oklahoma Panhandle State in his lone action at the running back position in 2005. “You can hand Zwinggi the ball at the 20 and he has the ability to go 80,” said Texas State associate head coach Brad Wright whose responsibilities include coaching the Bobcats’ running backs. “He has done a great job running the football.”
