SANTA CLARA, Calif. -- California running back Vic Enwere has leaned out and added muscle this offseason, and, in head coach Sonny Dykes's words, "is pretty tough to tackle," and is "ready to have a big year ... people don't like to tackle him."
The junior sledge hammer, though, gives all the credit to a veteran line in front of him, which he calls the strongest unit on the team.
Once the Bears went away from the vertical set in the middle of last season, the results were astounding. The Bears allowed just seven sacks over the final six games, after having allowed 20 over the previous seven, and allowed 19 tackles for loss over the final six games, compared to the 47 they gave up in the first seven games of the season. It can only get better from there, Enwere says.
