Georgia Tailback Race

By  | 

ATHENS, Ga. (AP) - There could be some new competition as
Georgia tries to replace Knowshon Moreno at tailback.

Georgia entered its final week of spring practice on Monday with
a fullback, Fred Munzenmaier, poised to be more than a blocker in
Saturday's G-Day spring game at Sanford Stadium.

A shortage of healthy tailbacks helped convince coach Mark Richt
to give Munzenmaier, a junior from Norcross High, a chance at
tailback in last Saturday's scrimmage. Munzenmaier, who had only
one carry in each of the last two seasons, had a team-high 11
carries for 54 yards and a touchdown in the scrimmage.

Munzenmaier still considers himself to be a blocker first, but
he said he enjoyed the rare chance to carry the ball.
