TULSA, Okla. (AP) - Trey Watts is taking the time these days to appreciate his rise from former walk-on to one of Conference USA's best.
Watts, a senior running back for Tulsa, leads a talented returning offensive unit this season for the Golden Hurricane - which finished 11-3 last season and won Conference USA.
The 5-foot-11, 200-pound Watts - son of former Oklahoma quarterback J.C. Watts - gained 2,215 all-purpose yards last season and was named the Most Valuable Player of the Liberty Bowl.
Trey Watts is expected to team with fellow senior running back Ja'Terian Douglas this season to give Tulsa plenty of backfield options on offense. The two have combined for 4,340 yards rushing and 21 touchdowns during their three years together.
