The workhorses of the Syracuse offense are junior Walter Reyes and sophomore Damien Rhodes.
Reyes became a nightmare for opposing defenses in his last five games, averaging 114.6 yards and 6.4 yards per carry on top of his 10 touchdowns.
"He's very explosive and very strong," Pasqualoni said. "Not only is he very explosive and strong, he's very, very fast."
Rhodes totaled 568 yards last year with seven touchdowns. But Rhodes wasn't limited to the backfield, as he compiled 1,268 all-purpose yards, good for sixth in the Big East.
More on the backs can be found in this month's issue of The Juice.
