Career: Despite spending much of his career injured until the last portion of the 2012 season, Bronson has 493 rushing yards and 11 touchdowns in his career thus far.

2013: Listed as a starter at running back on the preseason depth chart, but will share the load with several other running backs. He also should again be EWU’s short-yardage back as he was in 2012. Ranked 41st on the preseason FCS running back rankings as selected by Josh Buchanan at philsteele.com. He transferred to Eastern from Washington in 2011, but had originally been recruited by Eastern and visited EWU as a high school senior.

2012: En route to earning honorable mention All-Big Sky honors, Bronson led the Eagles with 11 rushing touchdowns. He started Eastern’s last seven games of the season, rushing for nine TDs and 286 yards in those outings. He rushed 13 times for a career-high 118 yards and a TD against North Dakota (10/6/12), one of EWU’s two individual 100-yard rushing performances on the season. He rushed 22 times for 76 yards and a pair of touchdowns against Wagner (12/1/12) in the FCS Playoffs. He had just three pass receptions all year, but two of them were for 16 yards in the 29-19 win over Wagner. He missed EWU’s first two games with a hamstring injury and carried just five times in his first two games of the season.

2011: Bronson made his Eagle debut against Washington (9/3/11) after playing previously for the Huskies. He rushed five times for five yards, and caught a pass for five yards against his former team. Bronson made the first start of his career at Montana (9/17/11), finishing with eight yards on seven carries in his most extensive action of the season. He also started as a fullback against Portland State (10/29/11).

Washington: Did not play in 2010, but spent the 2009 season as a backup tailback at Washington. He saw action in a total of seven games as a true freshman, rushing 19 times for 89 yards. He carried the ball eight times for 39 yards against Oregon, including a long run of 18. He rushed three times for 31 yards in a 42-10 win over No. 19 California and carried the ball four times for 16 yards in a 30-0 blanking of Washington State. He originally was a part of the fall 2008 recruiting class, but delayed enrollment until January 2009 and entered the 2009 season as a true freshman.

HS: Graduated from Kentwood HS in 2008. He finished his high school career with 3,810 rushing yards, and was averaging more than 200 yards per game as a senior before suffering an ankle injury. He still finished his final prep season with 1,450 yards rushing. Named by the Seattle Times as a “Red Chip” selection as one of the top 22 prospects in the state of Washington. He was selected as the South Puget Sound League’s 4A Co-Offensive Back of the Year and was a first team All-SPSL running back. Earned Associated Press 4A All-State honorable mention accolades. Bronson was selected to participate for the West team at the Washington State Football Coaches Association’s annual East West All-Star Game. He was also a member of the Seattle Times “Star Times” all-area team and received honorable mention as a “Northwest Nugget” by the Tacoma News Tribune. He was named All-West Region by PrepStar and was one of 14 running backs listed on the News-Tribune’s Western 100. He was rated as the No. 11 recruit in Washington and the No. 59 running back in the country by Scout.com. In addition, he was ranked as the state of Washington’s No. 13 football recruit and as the nation’s No. 39 running back by Rivals.com, and was rated the No. 13 recruit in the state by Superprep. As a junior, he ran for 1,437 yards and 14 touchdowns, earning first team All-South Puget Sound League honors. As a sophomore, he rushed for 1,045 yards over 10 games, earning All-SPSL first team accolades. Bronson also ran the 100 meters, 200 meters, 400 meters and various relays on the Kentwood track team. Former Eagle Aaron Boyce also attended Kentwood. Boyce was an All-America wide receiver for Eastern in 2007 and finished his career (2006-09) with 222 receptions for 3,330 yards and 29 touchdowns to rank second in Eastern history in all three categories. Boyce was a 2005 graduate of Kentwood High School where he played basketball on the same team as former Eagle and current Detroit Piston Rodney Stuckey.

Personal: Sociology major. Born 3/6/90 in Seattle, Wash. Son of Johinnie and Sandra Bronson. His older brother, John, was a standout defensive lineman at Kent-Meridian before playing college ball at Penn State and in the NFL with the Arizona Cardinals (2005-06).
