Like trying to tackle a locomotive

It was hard Monday to tell who was the most sore, West Texas A&M running back Keithon Flemming or all those Central Oklahoma players who tried to tackle him. Flemming admitted he had some bruises after taking some hard hits. But he dealt out the pain, too, running through tackles time and again on his way 124 yards. He also put his body in harm's way to protect QB Keith Null from the Bronchos' aggressive pass rush, once just throwing himself in the way of a pass rusher.
Flemming said WT coaches had critiqued his 52-yard effort against Mesa State with a single adjective: "Nonaggressive."
"I know that it was just a tool to motivate me, but it bothered me that they said it," Flemming said.
