UNC's Barrington Edwards Stepping Up His Game
Last night against Furman, Edwards had his best game of the season in relief of starter Ronnie McGill. And it wasn't just because he was playing against Furman...Barrington was running hard, breaking tackles, and showing a lot of second effort.
He ended with 11 carries for 56 yards and a touchdown to go with 2 receptions for 29 yards. His yards per carry were actually higher than McGill's, and his best play (a screen pass turned into big yardage) didn't even show up in the stat book since it was called back on a penalty.
Edwards' continued improvement is going to be crucial as the Heels enter the heart of the ACC conference schedule. We all know McGill is a stud, but he's got limited stamina and will need Edwards to share the load.
