The Duke Football Summer Spotlight runs every Tuesday and Thursday on GoDuke.com and features interviews with members of the reigning ACC Coastal Division Champion Blue Devils.
DURHAM -- Redshirt senior running back Josh Snead is the focus of today’s Duke Football Summer Spotlight. The second-year starter enters his final season as Duke’s active leader in rushing yards after a 2013 campaign in which he led the Blue Devils with 651 rushing yards and 6.1 yards per rush.
Snead is Duke’s biggest homerun threat in the backfield, as evidenced by his career average of 5.5 yards per rush and four rushes of at least 30 yards in 2013. He eclipsed 1,000 career rushing yards last season and currently sits at 22nd Duke’s all-time list with 1,368 rushing yards in his career.
Duke returns 44 letterwinners (20 offense; 21 defense; three special teams) and 17 starters (eight offense; six defense, three special teams) from a squad that went 10-4 overall and 6-2 in the ACC while reaching the Chick-fil-A Bowl a year ago.
