Videos: Koenning, Knox Talk Running Backs, Assess Shumpert

STARKVILLE | We got to pick the offensive brains of a couple MSU assistant coaches this morning following the first practice of the day. Offensive coordinator Les Koenning and running backs coach Greg Knox both visited with the assembled media, and a lot of the talk centered around the running backs.

Both coaches talked about freshman tailback¬†Ashton Shumpert, who might or might not see the field this season, but he’s certainly made a good early impression. The Fulton product is just trying to wrap his head around all the coaches are throwing at him, but they love his effort and his work ethic.
