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.
