Charles Pierre was the leader in rushing yards last season, with 517 yards, and he scored three touchdowns. He completed this feat carrying the ball 145 times. One carry turned into a 28-yard run at Louisville, a team that finished in the top 20 that season. His two best games were at Louisiana-Lafayette, where he rushed for 94 yards, and against North Texas at Dolphin Stadium, where he rushed for 84. This surge in production was spurred by Pierre’s 2004 season where he got to work behind FAU’s all-time leading running back Doug Parker. He gained valuable experience that year and was also able to work with three senior Owl football players. He used 2004 as his red shirt* season.
