Michael Alisa burst onto the scene last season after the three-headed committee of JJ DiLuigi, Bryan Kariya, and Josh Quezada couldn’t get it going.  However, he earned his status as a fan-favorite while only rushing for 455 yards and three touchdowns.  It will take a lot more to get going this season and the Cougars will need to rely on him and fellow backfield mate Juice Quezada to get going early this season to help set up the passing game for senior QB Riley Nelson.  Personally, I expect to see him top 100 yards rushing multiple times this season and see pay dirt closer to 10 times.  I’m hoping for big things for him as he sets himself up for great success in his senior campaign next season.
