Tiamon Pennymon is only a freshman and he will miss the remainder of the season with an injury, but he created a buzz very early in his high school career.

"He could be pretty special," Cartersville Head Coach Frank Barden said about freshman running back Tiamon Pennymon. "I have coached some good ones and he could be a good one for us."

Ronnie Brown is one of the top running backs Barden has coached, but he has coached some of the top prospects in Georgia over the years. He knows when he has one.

Pennymon went down early in the season when he broke his femur, but it wasn't until he got off to a good start on the varsity level.

"I had over 100 yards before I got hurt in the third game. It just happened and I have been out, but I will be back," Pennymon told Scout.

He still has three more seasons of high school to play and the 5-foot-11, 190 pound running back already has his eye on two schools.

"I really like Georgia and Alabama. They have had some great running backs in the past and I really like the history of their programs. I hope to be recruited by those schools."

If things go the way Coach Barden thinks they will, Pennymon has nothing to worry about.

"He has a chance, a real chance to do some things for us, and then on the next level. His injury was unfortunate, but he will be back, and he has a lot of potential," the Purple Hurricane head coach said.
