Dade RB Likes UM

Terry Williams was the starting running back at Miami Central as a senior last season. He was one of the leading rushers in Dade County. Pushing him every step of the way as his talented backup, junior Gordon Warner. Now it's Warner's time to shine.

"Terry had a great year," Warner said. "Now it's my turn. I'm capable of doing the things he did last year and hopefully we'll carry it into the playoffs this year."

Gordon Warner, 5-foot-10, finished his junior season with close to 500 yards rushing and over 200 yards receiving. Not bad for a nine-game performance.

The talented running back, who already has a passing SAT score, is getting lots of interest from college coaches. Things will likely pick way up for him when he starts running over opposing defenses.

"The three I like most right now are UM, Florida, and Rutgers," he said. "They're all sending me (hand-written) letters. They all seem interested. I really like UM. It's a good football program with a good track record of running backs. Plus, it's a good education."

Warner, who also runs track, plans on attending the All-American Combine in Boca Raton on May 13.
