Top Academy Fullbacks
4. Broam Hart (Air Force)- Air Force lost nearly its entire starting offense from a year ago, so one should expect a number of new faces. Hart got time as a backup fullback in his freshman season. Last year as a sophomore, he carried 29 times for 100 yards. The competition should continue into the fall for the lead role, and Hart will be in the mix despite lacking a great deal of proven production.
3. Chris Swain (Navy)- Swain will be the backup, but with 15 carries for 154 yards last year, he is one of the rare academy fullbacks who has some experience heading into the coming season. The number one guy on this list should keep Swain's production potential down a bit, however:
2. Larry Dixon (Army)- Dixon, who ran for 839 and 6 TDs yards last season, is as good as any other academy fullback. Dixon has the speed, blocking ability and toughness you want in a fullback. He's a big reason why Army led the nation in rushing last season and will be a big factor for the Black Knights in 2013.
1. Noah Copeland (Navy)- Copeland represents not only the top returning fullback by a wide margin, but he is one of the better backs (fullback, slotback, you name it) returning to any service academy in 2013. He led Navy with 738 rushing yards last season and added five touchdowns. Expect Copeland and quarterback Keenan Reynolds to again carry the Navy rushing attack.
