(University of Colorado Transfer ’06-’09)
HGT: 5-10 WGT: 225
It is not often a College football player is able to step away from the game for 2 full seasons and come right back in and have success, but that is exactly what former University of Colorado Running Back, Demetrius Sumler, did in 2012. Sumler was a highly recruited RB coming out of high school who rushed for almost 5,700 yards and 67 touchdowns in his career at Cathedral Catholic HS in San Diego. Sumler then signed a National Letter of intent to play for Colorado. He would use the 2006 season as a redshirt year. In 2007, 2008 and 2009 he was a part time starter. Much like the state of Colorado’s program during that time Sumler’s role was all over the place and was expanded and reduced back and forth. Following the 2009 season, Sumler decided to forego his senior season of competition at Colorado and focus on graduating so that he could transfer to another school for a better opportunity to compete. After missing 2 full seasons, Sumler had completed his degree and ended up at Division II program, Central Washington University. In 2012, Sumler started 9 of 11 games for Central Washington and carried the ball 212 times for 1,108yds and 15 touchdowns. He would haul in 26 receptions for 228yds & 3 more touchdowns.
