San Diego State Offensive Line
Aztecs running back Donnel Pumphrey put his name in many record books this season. He leads all active FBS running backs this year in total rushing yards. His career rushing yards puts him fifth on the all-time FBS list, and at the top of SDSU’s all-time list, ahead of the only Hall of Famer Marshall Faulk. Of course, a running back can’t do much without his offensive line. And in the case of the Aztecs, two linemen, in particular, have been the unsung heroes for Pumphrey’s record-breaking season….
Senior center Arthur Flores (6-foot-5, 305 pounds) and senior guard Nico Siragusa (6-5, 330) both possess the ideal size and strength that NFL teams covet. Flores was named to the preseason All-Mountain West Conference first-team back in August, while SB Nation listed Siragusa among its top 50 players in the MWC. Pumphrey may get all of the glory, but Flores and Siragusa lend a big assist in that regard.
