The 6-foot-3, 185-pound Jerome Tiller runs the 40-yard dash in 4.5 seconds. He has led the Volunteers to a 2-0 start in 2006. In last week's 57-3 beat down of the Highland Owls, Tiller gained 215 total yards and scored five touchdowns.
Tiller is a special football player, but he can't do it all by himself. Adrian Delgado makes up a key component of the Volunteer offensive line. Coach Bruce raved about the 6-foot-4, 280-pound Delgado as well.
"He is a great blocker," Bruce said. "He finishes his blocks. Last week, he was our offensive player of the week for the o-line."
Tiller and Delgado will definitely play a big part in the Volunteer's success this season. They are already off to a good start and should start hearing from Division I schools in the next couple of months.
