The 5-10, 210-pound back is a more mature runner as a senior, Lincoln coach D.J. Dobbins said. "He's following his blockers better," Dobbins said. "He's running hard every game and doing lots of good things." Pula has 94 carries for 717 yards. Of his 16 TDs, 14 have come via the run. "His yards are down, but his TDs are up this season," Dobbins said. "I think he'll take that trade."
