Brandon Perez

After sitting out the entire 2009 season, fullback Brandon Perez will be back in an Aggie uniform this year.

Perez's future was in doubt after last season, his senior year. He suffered an ankle injury which sidelined him for the entire 2009 campaign and threatened to end his career. It turns out he was granted a medical redshirt.

Perez was a grinder for the Aggies under Hal Mumme, often being a blue-collar worker who did most of his damage in the trenches. He would get the occasional carry and was used from time to time as a pass catcher out of the backfield.

The team will also bring back fullback Ronald Opetaia, who was a good player for the Aggies last year. How both of them are utilized in the offense in 2010 remains to be seen, but both should be in the mix as offensive contributors.

Great news for Brandon. Hopefully he can help ease the load on Seth.

Can always use a between the tackle runner who can catch the ball.

The kid is all heart and one of the strongest players on the team.

If he stays healthy, he will open some holes for Seth Smith.

3 backs behind the QB, 1 TE and 1 WR and play the run/pass option with Fleming at QB. Or pass with Walls!
