Citadel Notes: Freshman Brandon Berry Makes Quick Impact at Fullback

Replacing All-American fullback Tyler Renew was always going to be one of the biggest challenges for The Citadel’s football team in 2017.

That challenge grew even more difficult when heir apparent Evan McField tore the ACL in his knee during spring practice.

Almost two weeks into the Bulldogs’ preseason practice, some answers at fullback are taking shape. Converted quarterback Brandon Rainey continues to make progress and freshman Brandon Berry is showing signs that he could help, as well.

Berry, listed at 5-11 and 227 pounds, has caught the eye of coach Brent Thompson over the last week or so, turning in some impressive runs during last weekend’s scrimmage.

“Brandon is a guy that we’ve put on a little bit of a fast track,” Thompson said after the scrimmage. “He’s 235 pounds and runs hard. He doesn’t know exactly what he’s doing yet, but he’s a load once he gets going in the right direction. He and Rainey are two guys we’re really going to count on.”

Berry rushed for 1,103 yards and nine touchdowns as a senior at Wakulla (Fla.) High School, operating out of a shotgun, one-back offense. The transition to B-back in the triple-option will be key for Berry.

“The biggest thing he has to do here is deal with the mesh track we run,” Thompson said. “You can’t vary too far off that track. If you do, you’ll get a fumble, and that’s where the biggest turnovers take place.”
