Pittsburg, KS -- The Gorillas love their running game, but this year they'll be pretty young at the tailback position if senior Solomon Watkins doesn't bounce back from injury.

Jeff Seybold, Jr. is likely to get the start this Saturday when Pitt State hosts NSU in their season opener. Seybold had only ten carries for 27 yards in 2012, but he did turn one into a touchdown. Either way, he's got the confidence of PSU head coach Tim Beck.
