Littlejohn led the Wolverines in the 2011 football season with 215 carries, 1505 yards and 23 touchdowns. On defense Littlejohn grabbed 15 receptions on the year for 301 yards and three touchdowns.

“He was definitely a go-to guy for us,” Ollis said. “He’s got college speed and I think that is what Catawba sees in him – the fact that he has the ability to break away from people.”
