College Note - Boise State Ashton Jeanty
Boise State running back Ashton Jeanty posted a career-high 178 rushing yards in the Broncos' 35-32 win over North Texas in the Frisco Bowl. Jeanty, a sophomore who played at Lone Star High in Texas, posted 821 yards and seven touchdowns last season. Sin ce then, he's made the Broncos' weight room a second home.
He's benching 335 pounds and squatting more than 500, and he said Monday that he's ready to build on last year. "Last year was a lot of learning and growing," Jeanty said. "I learned to push thro ugh and adapt to things.
Whatever opportunities I get this year, I'm going to make the most of them and help the team win. " George Holani decided to put the NFL on hold for a year and return for his redshirt senior season, but he's rehabbing from a shoul der injury and is limited at spring practice, opening the door for Jeanty to hog the starting reps. - Idaho Statesman .
