Coach Danny Hope feels that Akeem Shavers could be a featured back for the Boilermakers.

Shavers certainly took advantage of his shot at being a featured back. With Ralph Bolden missing the Little Caesars Bowl with a torn ACL, Shavers stepped in and ran for 149 yards on 22 carries in a victory over Western Michigan. With Bolden out for the spring, Shavers has a chance to build on the momentum and perhaps carry it right into the 2012 season. Shavers, who will be a senior, ran for 519 yards (4.7 ypc) and 6 touchdowns last year.
