During an interview with ESPN, Georgia Bulldogs running back Nick Chubb was asked if he ever gets tired having to carry the ball so much. People say let your game speak for you, but Chubb’s response was perfect.
“I was tired almost every game, but I didn’t really show it. If you’re tired, just go in and score and get off the field,” Chubb said.
The star rusher appears to be very self-motivated.
Chubb grinds, stays focused and never seems to leave the field with the feeling of he could have given more. He improves with every practice and does not complain because he knows he is only getting better and he was blessed with the opportunity to ball.
That attitude makes Chubb ideal player for any team.
There is more to a running back than speed and strength. In order to be successful coming out of the backfield, you have to be very knowledgeable and never stop examining the defense. Chubb does this exceedingly well.
It is his vision that makes him stand out; being able to find holes in the defense and plan his route as soon as the ball touches his hands.
Chubb totaled 1,547 yards on 219 carries in 2014. With the high expectations this season, all eyes are on him as he carries a heavier workload after Todd Gurley left for the NFL. There might not be a player in college who touches the ball more than Chubb this fall.
He says his mode is to go in and score and get off the field, and he won’t be tired anymore. Just hand him the ball, and let him work.
“That’s all I need,” Chubb said.
