Video: Rainey Doing What It Takes

A lot of things on the football field come very natural to Chris Rainey. The sophomore running back at the University of Florida can dazzle with the ball in his hands and in open space. Blocking is not something that comes natural and neither is putting on the necessary weight to be an effective blocker in the SEC. Rainey is working on both and talks about it here.

Chris Rainey met with the media Monday and discussed the necessary evil of blocking while on offense. It's not that he doesn't want to, it is that it doesn't come as easy as making defenders miss when he has the ball.

He also has an issue of sorts with putting on weight. It is something that just doesn't come naturally as he fights to maintain his weight of nearly 180 pounds.

Rainey discusses this and more in this brief encounter with the media after practice on Monday.
