Lump It Up
Dave McMahon -- How has the practices and scrimmages been going?
Kregg Lumpkin -- Pretty good, although there is always room for improvement.
DM -- What do you have to improve on?
KL -- I have to do a better job blocking and get my right steps in.
DM -- Towards the end of the season last year it seemed like you were your old self, did the season end too soon?
KL -- I felt like I was back in the middle of the season. I was at practice and someone landed on my knee and it didn't hurt. After that I found my groove.
DM -- What is the best way to play all 3 running backs?
KL -- I don't know. I don't know how coach does it.
DM -- Is there anything that Thomas Brown or Danny Ware does better than you that you wish you had?
KL -- I wish I had their speed. They can break it better than I can.
DM -- How is Knowshon Moreno doing?
KL -- He is doing real good. He is learning the offense real quick.
DM -- Compare where he is right now at this stage to where you were at that stage?
KL -- He is a step ahead of me.
DM -- Would you rather run over a defender or use your speed and burn him?
KL -- I would like to do both. I am about 25 pounds heavier than I was during my freshman year, so I have power. But in the offseason I worked real hard on my speed and moves, so I can do that, too.
DM -- What is a complete running back?
KL -- Someone that is a power runner and speed runner... someone with great hands... someone that knows how to read defenses and blocks well. They do it all.
DM -- Name some complete running backs...
KL -- In the NFL, I would say Edgerrin James, LaDainian Tomlinson, Larry Johnson, Priest Holmes, Eddie George and a few more.
DM -- Thank you for your time and good luck in becoming a complete running back.
