Boasting a rare combination of power, speed and agility, Georgia tailback Knowshon Moreno was the talk of Athens even before he played in a real game. Taking a redshirt during his true freshman season in 2006, Moreno made waves as a scout-team superstar. When he finally took the field in 2007, he more than lived up to the hype, rushing for more than 1,300 yards and establishing himself as one of the most dangerous players in the SEC.
By The Numbers:
In his first season, Moreno carried the ball 248 times for 1,334 yards and 14 touchdowns. He averaged 5.4 yards per carry. He also caught 20 passes for 253 yards, an average of 12.7 yards per catch.
Career Highlight:
In a season of outstanding performances, one stands out among the rest. In Georgia's crucial win over rival Florida, Moreno torched the Gators for 188 yards and three touchdowns. The game made Moreno a Bulldog legend.
2008 Outlook:
It's hard to imagine this kid is only a sophomore, or that Moreno could be even better in 2008 than he was in 2007.Look for a possible record breaking season this year with Moreno.
