Found October 16, 2013 on Orange Fizz:
Syracuse has racked up 685 rushing yards over its last two games. Jerome Smith, Prince-Tyson Gulley and Terrel Hunt ran the ball collectively for over nine yards a pop against NC State on Saturday. What is going so well for the Orange ground attack? Syracuse running backs coach DeAndre Smith has the answers. He stepped into the Fizz Spotlight this week to discuss the run game’s success, why Jerome Smith has made such great strides with his agility since last season, and how he’s deciphered Georgia Tech’s triple option.   Listen to the DS FizzCast here and read on below for some excerpts.   On Terrel Hunt complementing the tailbacks “We need Terrel to help us out, and get us going, making some plays with his feet, and he’s done a great job doing that.
