Lumpkin braces for RB battle this spring

ATHENS – Kregg Lumpkin spoke with Dean Legge for a short time about Georgia's upcoming spring practices.

Dean Legge: Would you say that this spring's competition between the running backs is going to be a fight?

Kregg Lumpkin: It is going to be a fight. All three of us have been competing since the start of 2005. There's always going to be a competition at running back. I think we are all three trying to get playing time. All of us are looking to get the number one spot, but we are looking to help each other out on and off the field.

Looking forward some, how much would a 100-yard game mean to you? You had one at the Capital One Bowl game, but lost it.

It would give me a lot of confidence to know that my knee is healthy.

Talking about your knee, is that something that you gained a lot of confidence in since returning to full hitting in September?

Yes. I've got a lot of confidence in my knee. When I first came back that was on my mind, but after a couple of weeks and a couple of chances to get into practice and games I just had to forget about it and try to keep pressing on.

It's not the first time you've been inured…

My freshman year I pulled my hamstring, and my senior year in high school I had a high ankle sprain. I have had a history of injuries, but I continue to fight back.
