Carlton Thomas: A Dawg Ready to Bust Out

Carlton Thomas is 5'7" tall, but don't harp on that around him. He's a football player and that's the way he looks at it. His height, or lack thereof, is a non-issue. The red-shirt freshman, who is in the mix for Georgia's starting tailback position, gained 90 yards on 6 carries in the Bulldogs second scrimmage Saturday night. Georgia coaches like his toughness and competitiveness, not to mention his talent and ability. The kid has blazing speed, but his ability to pound it up inside is what has surprised everyone. Word out of Athens is that Carlton Thomas is something special, so look for him on the field a lot for the Dawgs this season. He'll be the one standing tall!
