Tech's backfield is loaded

Louisiana Tech's move of Freddie Franklin to wide receiver must mean that the Bulldogs are really, really loaded in the offensive backfield.

It also indicates that William Griffin and Myke Compton, a pair of 3-star freshmen recruits, must be the real deal. Tech's top two running backs from a year ago (Mark Dillard is the other) are now playing different positions, which is a luxury not many WAC schools have. Tech still has four highly rated running backs (a soph. and 3 freshmen) in the stable.

And don't forget former Bossier High running back Weldon Brown, who showed a lot of promise last season in spot duty as a running back, has also been moved to the defensive secondary.

Now if coach Jack Bicknell can just settle on a competent quarterback.
