No. 1: NCCU’s Isaiah Totten

Isaiah Totten is an aggressive running back. He will run you over, split the tackles, and when given open space; he will be gone. Just ask Duke as he busted open a 59-yard run last season during their contest. And just another fun fact, he did the same thing to Duke in 2017; but rushing for 81 yards.

Totten has played in all 11 games in each of his first two seasons. His best game was when he racked up 190 yards on 36 attempts against Bethune-Cookman. He gained 768 rushing yards on the season. And if it wasn’t for short performances against NC A&T and SC State; Totten would’ve hit the 1,000 yard mark.

Despite that, Totten has proven to be consistent. Compared to most running backs in the league that’s returning, he’s seen more games (22) and attempts (264) over the past two seasons. During his 2017 campaign, he gained 718 yards on the ground and five rushing touchdowns. That’s partially less than his 2018 stats but his numbers are consistent. He’s produced slightly in the receiving category but he’s here to rush the ball and gained yards between the tackles.

As Coach Trei Oliver starts his first season as the Eagles’ head coach, Isaiah Totten is a person to build around as well as depend on. He’s been in the Eagles program since 2016, being redshirted his freshman year. He stayed consistent and turned into an All-MEAC running back in both years he touched the field.

Totten is back and what we’ve seen with him so far; there’s no doubt that he will be even better.
