Player Background
Opponents usually know Breitenstein will run the ball up the middle. They just struggle to stop him. He's the fuel in the Terriers' triple option, anything but a traditional plodding fullback. He has an ability to make tacklers miss him and then find open space. He rushed for a school-record 1,639 yards and 22 touchdowns on over six yards per carry in 2010, earning a deserving nod on the The Sports Network/Fathead.com FCS All-America first team. He rushed for over 200 yards against both Furman and Samford. Behind his lead, the Terriers led the FCS in rushing yards per game (297.8 yards per game). Breitenstein's grandfather, Bob Breitenstein, was the head football coach for one season in 1959 at Appalachian State, which Wofford tied for the Southern Conference title last season.
