Per Report: Mike Pierre’s football career is over

Per Joey Knight – Per Knight’s report, senior running back Mike Pierre will have to give up his football career due to an unspecified medical condition. The 5’10” 205 lb. back had 41 carries last year for 114 yards (2.8 yards per carry) and caught 3 passes for 32 yards. He had 74 yards rushing during the spring game.

 

With the departure of Pierre, the Bulls have even less experience in the backfield. It leaves just Darius Tice who had 35 carries for 141 yards last year, as the only returning back with a carry last year (Willie Davis is transferring to Tennessee Tech per Knight). The Bulls will have Sta’fon McCray along with true freshmen Marlon Mack and D’Ernest Johnson all looking to split the running load for the offense.

I wish Mike Pierre the best and hope nothing but great health and success wherever his life takes him next.
