Spring Grade for Running Backs
This spring, Leon Washington has been the clear vocal leader. Going into his senior year, this is just a tune up for him. Lorenzo Booker is also a leader and goes about his practice the same way Leon does. Although they do not get many carries, the one's they do get have been pretty spectacular. Whether it is Lorenzo breaking a long run around the outside or Leon grinding out those tough yards up the middle, it's quite impressive. For these two guys, their spring is a success as long as they don't get hurt.
On the opposite end of the spectrum, you have Jamaal Edwards and Lamar Lewis. For them, it's their first spring practice and each is eager to prove themselves. Although Lamar was slightly injured about half way through spring, he still showed he will be more than capable to carry the load one day. He could be a huge threat catching the ball out of the backfield. Jamaal has stayed healthy mostly by delivering hits rather than taking them. He runs hard and loves contact. We are impressed with the way he hits the hole and his power. The only thing he needs to work on is not going backwards on broken plays. Overall, both have shown exciting runs and lots of promise. Things will get interesting when high school All-American Antone Smith is thrown in the mix
The grade might have been higher with a healthy and more experienced offensive line. However, we were impressed with how all of them ran this spring and this position should be the strength of the 2005 Seminole offense.
