Probably would have if the picture was in color :D

 

 

It's amazing to remember Gainesville used to have a big time running back, i sorta forget they could run the ball with some the recent times I've watched them ;)

Clinton Portis one of best running backs to come out of North Central FL

 

Saw some of his games on TV when he was late in his career, he also had one of most entertaining media bits of any NFL player

 

Just look up Clinton Portis post game press conferences if you don't believe me lol

Terrible guess....C'mon man! Everyone knows the A Train is from Joliet, Illinois. Wow, I thought you were better than this.

I couldn't think of another white running back lol.  I admit it was a horrible guess, must have been all those hits to the head I took.
