Travis Greene MAC East Offensive Player of the Week

Travis Greene continued BG's success as MAC East Offensive Player of the Week...he's been a little overshadowed by the QB, but Greene deserves a lot of accolades.  He's about to become BG's all-time record holder for career rushing, which is a huge accomplishment.  There have been some great ones and he is certainly among the best we have ever had.  With BG having four and probably five games left, he's almost certain to get the record.

Also, I know that we play more games than we used to.  However, the RBs don't get the ball as often as they used to, either.  Here's a good stat.  Greene's career yards per carry is 5.6, and the program record is 5.7 by Fred Durig.  So, however you like to evaluate RBs, he's among the best we have had.
Congrats Travis.  Thanks for being a Falcon.

Offensive Player of the Week: Bowling Green RB Travis Greene
Bowling Green senior running back Travis Greene (Carol City, Fla.) rushed for a career-high three touchdowns as Bowling Green defeated Ohio 62-24 Wednesday night. Greene, who is now just 175 yards shy of becoming Bowling Green's new all-time career rushing record-holder, rushed 13 times for 106 yards – an average of 8.6 yards per carry – in the win against the Bobcats. It was his third 100-yard game of the season and the Falcons' sixth victory in a row.

And to think he started out as a WR and his amazing LB brother didn't start until this year. Recruit Florida more!!
