Blazer Names to Know: #34 Dan Burks

In at #2 on the depth chart is RB Dan Burks. After an excellent performance in 2004 (gaining 880 yards with a 5.4 ypc average, including a 69 yard TD run against Baylor while splitting time with Corey White) Burks was hampered by injuries in '05, decreasing his rushing attempts to 67 in eight games. He did manage a decent 4.8 yds per carry (321 yds total) including a 115 yd performance in the loss to Marshall and 78 yards on 12 attempts in the win against Rice. If Burks can remain healthy and get back to his '04 form, he and White can look to dominate C-USA as the Blazers run the ball more.
