Freshman Running Back Impressing Everyone

Posted by | Apr 16, 2012 | -

By Alex Scarborough, ESPN:
Halfway through the fourth quarter of Saturday’s A-Day scrimmage, T.J. Yeldon took a knee. The true freshman running back who had just ripped off a 50-yard touchdown run that left 78,542 fans dumbstruck looked totally unfazed. He had just turned in one of the most impressive A-Day scrimmages by a first-year player in recent memory, finishing with 179 total yards (88 rushing, 91 receiving) and a touchdown. Still, a smile didn’t dare cross his face. Yeldon accommodated a few teammates looking for a fist bump, walked to the bench for a cup of Gatorade and turned around to find the end of the sideline to get away. There, things were the quietest. There, he put a towel over his head and let the sounds of the game sink in. If only he heard what was being said about him. One player’s jaw hit the floor on Yeldon’s touchdown, letting out a long, drawn out, “Wow.” Another jumped up and down and could do little more than laugh. In the stands, fans looking for the next Trent Richardson, the next Heisman Trophy-caliber running back, began to wonder if they had just discovered it on a warm day in April. [More]
