Notebook: Banks bringing the old school to the fullback position
Georgia Southern running back William Banks, center, loses his helmet while bulling his way through UTC defenders on a three-yard run to the four-yard-line late in the fourth quarter at Paulson Stadium Saturday.
With running back Dominique Swope out for the season with a shoulder injury and likely taking a red shirt, the Georgia Southern Eagles needed somebody to fill his shoes. They got an old school answer in William Banks, a senior who seems to come up big every time he’s thrust into the starting role. Banks rushed for 86 yards on 18 carries on Saturday as GSU (3-1, 1-1 Southern Conference) held off Chattanooga 23-21.
