Profile
Spent two seasons as the Bucs' main tailback and found the endzone with good regularity in the process. But with the drafting of Reggie Cobb and the signing of Gary Anderson in 1990, found himself surplus to requirements and was cut along with backfield colleague William Howard in 1990. Went briefly to the Bears but carried the ball only once for Chicago before being out of the NFL for good. Had twice been all-SEC at college for the Georgia Bulldogs and finished his career as their second-leading rusher behind Herschel Walker.
