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.
