The Chippewa line, not unlike others around college football, has had to become more athletic in the recent past as offenses have evolved into the uptempo no-huddle sets that seem to dominate the landscape nowadays.
It’s step-up-and-deliver time for several wide receivers and tight ends who have been waiting in the wings as the Central Michigan football team embarks on the 2018 season.
The Chippewas are deep, talented and experienced at the running back position, headlined by junior Jonathan Ward, who in 2017 became CMU’s first 1,000-yard rusher since 2014 when he finished with 1,019 yards (a 5.7-yard-per-carry average) and 10 touchdowns on the ground.
The 6-foot-7, 225-pound Poljan was a part of Bonamego’s first recruiting class at CMU, signing in February, 2016 after a brilliant career at Lansing Catholic High School, the same school that produced Rush, who is now with the Dallas Cowboys.
