Profile
Big bruising runner who formed part of the "Three Horsemen" backfield of rookies in 1988 with Lars Tate and Kerry Goode. Played mainly as a full back in his two seasons but did record a 100-yard game in 1988 against New England out of the tailback position. Was surprisingly cut in camp in 1990 as neither he nor Lars Tate made that year's squad. Had 14 touchdowns in his senior season at Tennessee and set a SEC record with 16 straight carries in a single game against Ole Miss.
