Tony Zenon.....

Come on down, you're the next contestant on "Meet the 2010 Georgia Tech Signees". Of course he had to come to Tech; the man is named after a Noble gas. If only he could wear #54.....Back to reality: the Zenon story is a great one. He & his family are Katrina refugees who settled in Albany, the first place they could get a reservation. Zenon attended Deerfield-Windsor Academy, a small private school, where he lit up GISA competition, running for 5,684 yards & 65 touchdowns. A stout 5'8" & 175 pounds, Zenon ran a 4.4 at our summer camp & was the offensive star of the afternoon. He'll play A-back at Tech.

Hash's take: thicker than people give him credit for. Very fast (4.4) but also elusive; changes direction very well. Had a great camp against other elite players this summer at Tech. Hard to bring down & stronger than people think. A good fit for our offense as we can use him situationally. Concerns about his size are overblown.

Player he reminds us of: West Virginia's Noel Devine in stature & style. Closer to home, think Charlie Rogers.
