Why future Coug RB Habibi-Likio fits Washington State

FUTURE COUG running back Cyrus Habibi-Likio, as the following videos show, has two things prized in a Washington State running back: 1) the ability to make the first man miss and 2) he's a strong receiving threat coming out of the backfield.

Habibi-Likio (6-1, 200) out of Mountain View, Calif., rushed for 1,438 yards and 17 touchdowns as a junior at St. Francis High. And like any high school running back, he's sure to gain the most notice this season for his ground yards.

But Get Sports Focus has put together an excellent package of highlights and interviews on Habibi-Likio. And one thing the videos show is a running back who looks to fit in nicely with the Air Raid, an offense that looks to maximize a running back's all-purpose yards.

Indeed, any running back with the elusiveness to make the first man miss and who works hard to perfect his route running and hands in the receiving game projects to do well in a Mike Leach offense.
