Growing up eating and breathing football in Fernandina Beach, Fla., not far from Harris, who grew up in Jacksonville, Kimble knew of Harris long before his BC days. He would read Harris’s name in the papers every week.
“Coming here and seeing a guy like that, I learned a lot from him telling me stuff and just watching him,” Kimble said. “He was like a mentor for me. He was never a selfish guy, he was always willing to help.
“Being able to take the role as a starting running back, I feel like any one of us can go out and run the rock, catch the rock, have a complete game, and I feel like Montel played a large part in that, just watching him and learning from him a lot.”
The personnel in BC’s backfield will be different, but none of them believe the production will change at all.
“It’s definitely competition between all of us, but from the start, we all knew that we were each skilled backs,” Williams said. “We each brought different things to the table and in the end I think that’s just going to make us more dynamic as an offense.”
