DJ Hubbard and Jonathon Beverly don’t have a catchy moniker, but they are a successful pair running the football for Colorado Mesa. The duo has combined for 923 yards and seven touchdowns in the Mavs’ first five games. Hubbard is the speedy, shifty back, with 401 yards and three TDs. Beverly is the bruiser of the duo, banging his way to 522 yards and four TDs. The two don’t care who carries the load, they just want to win.

Dynamic duo

Hubbard, Beverly form quite a 1-2 punch at running back for Mesa

These guys need a better moniker.
“We call ourselves the 1-2 Punch,” said CMU sophomore running back Jonathon Beverly. “He brags about being the fast one, and I brag about being the strong one.”
“He” would be DJ Hubbard, who is definitely the fast one, although Beverly is not slow by any means.
They see themselves as a small-school version of LenDale White and Reggie Bush, the “Thunder and Lightning” duo at Southern California.
