Winter Workouts: Running Backs

How did the Bearcats running backs perform during winter workouts with the Bearcats strength staff? BCI has the numbers.

This is a group where five of the six current scholarship running backs were held out of some or all of the winter testing due to recovering from injury or illness.

Doug Jones has lost weight from 283 pounds to 270 pounds. Due to his injury, he was held out of most of the winter conditioning.

Marcus Waugh has added 13 pounds in less than a year and is one of the strongest players on the squad despite weighing only 248 pounds. His bench press of 435 pounds is 2nd on the squad to only Terrill Byrd (465 lbs.). Like Jones, Marcus was held out of many testing areas due to an injury.

Brad Bury is the smallest of the fullbacks at 233 pounds. Brad set a personal record of 4.7 seconds in the forty this winter and set 7 personal bests. He was the only scholarship running back to test in all areas.

Greg Moore was held out of all winter conditioning due to an illness. Greg was 226 pounds prior to getting sick. His fastest recorded forty time by the strength and conditioning staff is 4.79 seconds.

Butler Benton is up to 212 pounds with only 5.4% body fat, lowest of the running backs and one of the lowest on the offense. Butler is the fastest of the running backs with a 4.59 forty but was held out of the most recent testing due to an injury.

Bradley Glatthaar weighs 219 pounds and had very little testing due to recovering from an injury.

David Wess looks to have recently been moved to receiver. David has added 20 pounds in two years and now weighs 218 pounds. Wess runs a 4.48 forty which would have made him the fastest running back.

Delbert Ferguson has been moved to linebacker this spring. Delbert has gained 13 pounds and now weighs 233 pounds. Delbert runs a 4.74 forty, a personal best at UC.

Walk-on Miles Davis is a 213 pound running back with 5.05 second forty speed.
