… After Two Georgia Tech Backs Injured
By Paul Sykes
Anthony Allen, former University of Louisville running back, will be the starting back for Georgia Tech in its 7:30 football game tonight against Clemson on ESPN.
After sitting out a season because of NCAA transfer rules, he finally got to the field Saturday in Georgia Tech’s 37-17 win over Jacksonville State. Three carries for 21 yards in a backup role and one catch for 27 yards.Â
Allen has moved into a starting role because of injuries to two GT running backs.
Allen holds the U of L single game rushing record, with his 275 yards against Middle Tennnessee in 2007. Fans may never know the reason Allen left Louisville but he has a permanent spot in U of L football history.Â His accomplishments in one game were amazing.[/stextbox]
