GREENSBORO - The Sports Network recently released its top 10 list of running backs in the Football Championship Subdivision. North Carolina A&T running Mike Mayhew (5-10, 190, Charlotte, N.C.) made the list after a 2010 season that saw him rush for more than 1,000 yards.
Writer Craig Haley wrote: "The 2009 MEAC Rookie of the Year has a natural ability to find a seam and get through it. He won't break away for long runs consistently, but instead compiles yards with his downhill style. Mayhew rushed for 1,082 yards and seven touchdowns on 221 carries as a junior, including 211 yards on 31 carries against a solid Bethune-Cookman defense."
The Sports Network publication specializes in covering FCS football. The Sports Network Top 25 is considered one of the official polls in FCS football. The Aggies open the 2011 season against Virginia University of Lynchburg 4 p.m., Saturday, Sept. 3 at Aggie Stadium.
