RALEIGH, N. Canadiens Jerseys For Sale .C. -- North Carolina States Matt Dayes is back from injury and determined to be the programs first 1,000-yard rusher in more than a decade. And hes got plenty of help, too, in a backfield that will carry a big load this season for the Wolfpack.N.C. State opens the season Thursday against William & Mary of the Championship Subdivision with a pair of inexperienced quarterbacks. And that could cause first-year coordinator Eli Drinkwitz to lean heavily on that backfield, which has plenty of options from Dayes to do-everything threat Jaylen Samuels.I think its going to be a huge weapon, Samuels said. With all the running backs weve got . weve just got a lot of guys who can do a lot of different things. Its going to put a lot on defenses with all our motions and shifts, just getting their eyes in the right place.Dayes had run for 865 yards and 12 touchdowns with five 100-yard games before suffering a foot injury that sidelined him for the final five games. The senior was limited in the spring while rehabbing the injury after surgery. He said he had some soreness early on in preseason camp but is 100 percent.Hes trying to become the first N.C. State rusher to crack 1,000 yards since T.A. McLendon in 2002.I want to pass 1,000 because I know I can get 1,000, Dayes said. I know I have a great group of O-linemen that are going to help me do that. Im not even worried about that right now because I know its going to come. Im just trying to do what I can do for the team at this moment.Behind Dayes on the depth chart is redshirt junior Dakwa Nichols and sophomore Reggie Gallaspy II, who played well against Syracuse and North Carolina after Dayes injury. Theres also redshirt freshman Johnny Frasier, a former four-star instate recruit who first committed to Florida State before flipping to N.C. State.Throw in Samuels -- who had a combined 16 rushing and receiving scores, and the Wolfpack will have no shortage of options.As for Drinkwitz, hes proven hes willing to run the ball.He was co-coordinator at Arkansas State in 2013, helping direct a Red Wolves offense that averaged nearly 45 rushing attempts and 206 yards per game.Drinkwitz served as Boise States offensive coordinator last year. The Broncos averaged about 191 yards rushing last year, ending the year with 277 yards and four scores on 56 attempts in a blowout win against Northern Illinois in the Poinsettia Bowl.Elis got a challenge in front of him like all offensive coordinators do in the first year of putting the pieces together, fourth-year head coach Dave Doeren said. The nice thing for him is hes got some weapons around him to use and I look forward to seeing how he does that.---Follow Aaron Beard on Twitter at http://www.twitter.com/aaronbeardap and the APs college football site at http://collegefootball.ap.org ;Adidas Canadiens Jerseys .ca NBA Power Rankings, ahead of the Miami Heat and San Antonio Spurs. Cheap Canadiens Jerseys . PETERSBURG, Fla. http://www.authenticcanadiensshopnhl.com/ . - Derek Wolfe says hes finally healthy after suffering a seizure in November that doctors now believe was related to the spinal cord injury he suffered in the preseason. WASHINGTON -- It might appear that the Philadelphia Phillies are playing out the string as the last-place club in the National League East.But that is not the case for manager Pete Mackanin, whose team will end a four-game series against the first-place Washington Nationals on Sunday in Washington. The Phillies are 63-79 after a 3-0 loss on Saturday night as Bryce Harper hit a three-run homer in the eighth.I am very patient. I dont have to be happy about the losses, Mackanin said.Mackanin has not hesitated to talk this weekend about his young pitchers and what September means when the club reports to spring training in February in Clearwater, Fla.Left-hander Adam Morgan will start Sunday for the Phillies. And while he is 2-9 with a 5.90 ERA, Morgan will take his place as one of several young pitchers who has faced the Nationals this weekend.Morgan is 0-2, 5.12 in three starts in his career against the Nationals, including a 2-1 loss at home on Aug. 31 when he gave up three hits and two runs in six innings with no walks and five strikeouts.Alec Asher started Thursday and went six innings and allowed no runs on two hits.Does he think about 2017?I just control what I can control. That is go out and compete to the best of my ability, Asher said. I am going to pitch to my strength.I am going back to being me, he said of last year. It is something to build on. I was a little bit of self-evaluation. It doesnt matter how hard you throw. If it is straight, they are going to hit it. (The change) has made a world of difference so far.Jake Thompson pitched into the sixth inning and gave up two runs and five hits in 5 1/3 innings on Friday.Right-hander Jerad Eickhoff started Saturday night and gave up no runs and five hits in six innings.That was a great pitching performance by him, Mackanin said. He mixed his pitches pretty well. He fought, he works hard. He was really good. I kind of expected him to be this kind of pitcher. He doesnt get rattled. He looks like hes out there to beat you.Thompson, Asher and Eickhoff were all acquired in a trade with the Texas Rangers in July 2015 for veteran lefty Coole Hamels. Youth Canadiens Jerseys. Morgan had lost nine games in a row before he beat the Miami Marlins in his last start as he did not walk anyone while giving up a run and five hits.It feels good. I wouldnt say I lost confidence, Morgan told reporters after that win. You cant lose confidence, you cant lose that belief in yourself.While the Phillies have a young staff, Washington has mostly a veteran one and Gio Gonzalez will start Sunday for the Nationals. He is 10-9 with a 4.40 ERA and he has won at least 10 games in every year since 2010.Freddy Galvis of the Phillies has faced Gonzalez 33 times and is hitting .273 against him.Maikel Franco, a right-handed hitter, is batting .077 in 13 at-bats against Gonzalez and Cesar Hernandez is hitting .211 in 19 at-bats.The Phillies will certainly start right-handed hitting Tommy Joseph against Gonzalez. Joseph is 0-for-2 against the lefty and Ryan Howard, a left-handed swinger for the Phillies, is 0-for-11 against Gonzalez in the past five years.Fans and media always ask will it be good Gio or bad Gio who takes the mound.On Tuesday at home against the Atlanta Braves, it was bad Gio, as he allowed six runs and did not get past the fourth inning. He does have a 1.40 ERA in three starts against the Phillies this year.The Nationals need Gonzalez to step up after Stephen Strasburg left his start after 42 pitches on Wednesday and has a flexor mass strain.And right-hander Joe Ross has been on the disabled list since July with right shoulder inflammation, although he did throw 60 pitches in a simulated game Saturday at Nationals Park.I guess that extra confidence just knowing, not having to worry like hows it going to feel when I get out there. (I had) a little bit of nerves going out there today, Ross told reporters. I guess it was easier in a controlled environment, live BP.Feeling good, so hopefully I get to the next start or whatever opportunity I get to go throw. Nothings really on my mind but going out there and try and get outs. Cheap NFL Jerseys Cheap NFL Jerseys China Cheap Jerseys From China Cheap NFL Jerseys Authentic Wholesale Jerseys China Cheap NFL Jerseys China NFL Cheap Jerseys ' ' '
