So what else is new? That shouldn't come as a surprise for the former Watauga High All-State product. Afterall, Breitenstein, who established himself as a legitmate college prospect during his junior year with the Pioneers, has been recognized as one of the top 10 running backs in the nation at the Football Championship Series level by The Sports Network.
Breitenstein, a red-shirt junior, ran for a school-record 1.639 yards last fall. He also scored 22 touchdowns, and he averaged more than six yards a carry. Breitenstein also had a pair of 200-yard rushing games against Furman and Samford.
The Terriers, who lost to Georgia Southern in the national quarterfinals last season, shared a Southern Conference championship with Appalachian State and finished the season with a 10-3 record. Breitenstein was also named to the The Sports Network and Associated Press All-America teams.
The Terriers open the season at home against Presbyterian College on Saturday, September 3.
