Florida Football Position Preview ’09: Batten Down the Hatches at Corner

Article By on 14th August, 2009

... a team’s running attack as "Thunder and Lightning" when there are two good backs that represent different styles. A power back is usually the "thunder," while a speedy back provides the "lightning."

Some notable combinations immediately come to mind: LenDale White/Reggie Bush at USC, and more recently James Davis/CJ Spiller at Clemson. Even Florida’s former Tebow/Demps/Rainey/Harvin combination qualifies (but that’s more like thunder, lightning, tornado, white squall).

For the 2009 Florida Gators, the best example of this phenomenon is at cornerback. Two players, Joe Haden and Janoris Jenkins, have very distinct styles that frustrate receivers and shut down opposing offenses.
