Senior back Kenny McIntosh gives updates on RBU

In the running game, patience is key. Waiting for blocks to set up so you can maximize your opportunity and hit the hole- something senior Kenny McIntosh is familiar with being Georgia’s veteran running back. But McIntosh’s patience has been displayed beyond the field. He’s been waiting for the opportunity to lead this running back room since he arrived. And now, as he enters his senior season his time has finally come.

McIntosh spoke about his new role in the offense and gave updates on RBU last Wednesday.





The backs that came before McIntosh had a large role in influencing his game. It helped him become the player he is today, “Now that it’s my turn, I know how that role looks. I know how it’s supposed to look.” He said he and fellow back, Kendall Milton, remembered: “being the young guys in the room…just wanting to be in this position.”

As the veteran in the room, McIntosh understands he can’t allow injuries like Andrew Paul’s recent ACL to faze them. When asked how the guys were dealing with that injury, he said, “…we just know to tighten up.”

Even with depth being a slowly approaching issue, McIntosh isn’t worried about being overworked, “… I don’t really have to take that load.” The Florida native believes in his guys, saying, “…we have a lot of running backs.” (Note that including McIntosh, Georgia has four scholarship backs.)

The opener against Oregon is fast approaching. Coming back after winning a national title, the Dawgs have a reputation to maintain come gameday this Saturday. And while the focus will probably be on the defense and their ability to “reload” after losing half their team to the draft. Or maybe Stetson Bennett, who had an entire offseason to prepare for the season rather than coming off the bench. But you can’t forget about the standard that is RBU. Kenny will lead the next round of great Georgia backs against the Duck defense. He’ll finally have the moment he’s been waiting for his “whole life.”
