AU's McCalebb to return for sr. year

Auburn junior running back Onterio McCalebb will return for his senior season, according to Auburn University officials. 

A second-team All-Southeastern Conference selection this season, McCalebb was Auburn's second leading rusher and receiver in 2011. The Fort Meade, Fla., native had 641 rushing yards and five touchdowns, while catching 32 balls for 344 yards and two scores.  

"I'm excited to have Onterio returning for his senior season," Auburn head coach Gene Chizik said. "He is really focused on having a great senior year and providing leadership for our team this coming season." 

McCalebb, who was named the Offensive MVP of the Chick-fil-A Bowl, lead Auburn with 101.8 all-purpose yards per game this season. 

"I talked to a lot of people and it was a hard decision, but I love Coach Chizik and our coaches like they are my father, and I love my teammates," McCalebb said. "I'm looking forward to coming back for my senior season to make myself a better player and to help my teammates win football games for Auburn and the Auburn family." 

McCalebb is 15th on Auburn's career rushing list with 2,016 yards and is ninth in career all-purpose yards with 3,341.
