Ellington Ready to Showoff for CJ

By

Red-shirt sophomore running back Andre Ellington will get the majority of the carries against Maryland.

Can Andre handle 20 carries a game?

“Yeah 20 plus.  I can carry the load.  That is what I trained for all summer.  I have just been looking for that opportunity,” said Ellington.

Saturday Andre will get to play in front of his mentor and good friend C.J. Spiller.  C.J. took Andre under his wing the day he stepped on campus.

“It will feel good.  I want to show him a lot of the things he taught me.  I want to go out there and play for him.  He came back to watch us.  I am going to try to put a show on for him,” said Ellington.

Andre says a win Saturday would be big for the Tigers.

“It means a lot.  A three game losing streak is not what you want.  We just need to go out there and win a game.  That will mean a lot to us,” said Ellington.

Watch Andre discuss his new role, the matchup with Maryland, playing in front of C.J. and much more!
