Undersized Ward Eyes Carries for OSU

Oregon St. is still looking for someone to step up and take over the running game for the upcoming season. Malcolm Agnew was the leading rusher last year, but a pair of freshman are looking to take some carries, too. Storm Woods and Chris Brown have both emerged as favorites throughout camp, but there’s a sophomore worth mentioning too. Terron Ward started three games for the Beavers last year, and even though he’s undersized for a runner, he has plenty of confidence in his abilities.

“I’ve had a chip on my shoulder since I was eight years old,” said Ward. “As long as I do what I have to do on the field here at Prothro and at Reser, I’ll be OK. The media, they’re going to do what they do, but I feel like I’m doing a good job.”

Last season, Ward ran for 211 yards and a touchdown on 3.3 yards per carry.
