Zenon’s star shines Mediacom’s doesn’t

By   /   May 3, 2011  /   Comments


Spring is winding down along with the annual flurry of intrasquad scrimmages that have to sustain college football fans for three months.

Last Saturday, the Georgia Tech Yellow Jackets held their Gold and White game and former DWS running back Tony Zenon got two carries and gained 22 yards as his Gold team won 21-7. Word out of the big city is he continues to surprise and impress his coaching staff with his intellect, speed and work ethic.

The redshirt freshman also drew heavy praise on the Atlanta Journal-Constitution blog as fans saw his speed and began asking questions. The following is a sample of various postings:

Who the heck is Tony Zenon and why haven’t we heard anything about him before today. He’s got 4.3 speed and was downright impressive today! How’s his spring gone so far? Haven’t heard of him before and haven’t read anything about him from anyone. He’s a PLAYER!

Old gold,
Zenon has been talked about more than once over the spring. Redshirted last year and has good hands to go along with that speed. I don’t see him beating out Smith, Bostic, or Jones but he will see playing time this year.



And this one is from the Tech beat writer:

Tony Zenon is an a-back who’s gone a little under the radar. He does have some potential.

Expect to see Zenon returning kicks and punts on Sept. 1 when the Jackets open up against Western Carolina.

Next season, Albany will send another player to the North Avenue trade school in the form of  Monroe’s Bryan Chamberlain. At 6’4″ and 280, he is expected to get some playing time immediately since the Jacket offensive line is in dire need of help.

The next BIG name?

The next big-time college player from Albany may be rising DWS junior Patrick Forrestal. At 6’5″ and 275 pounds, he is an imposing figure with quick feet. Last week, the University of South Carolina sent a representative to the DWS campus for a meeting with the 16-year-old giant. You’ll hear more about him over the next few years.

Speaking of DWS and linemen, the offseason chatter about the defending state champs has been mostly about their huge and experienced line. While Forrestal is certainly the largest, the line will average around 230 pounds this year and they are also deep with enough returning players to continue their thunder and lightning unit rotations. Knight Head Coach Allen Lowe and offensive line coach Ty Kinslow can mix and match Harrison Houston (230), Parks Pace (195), Trey Flynn (230), Weston King (240) and Tanner Lowe (180) in with Forrestal to push around any team they face this season.


Mediacom (888-847-6228) update


FoxSports reports that every other cable and satellite TV provider in the Southeast region has agreed to terms to broadcast the Braves on PeachtreeTV. There are still 41 games Mediacom (888-847-6228) customers will miss including Friday’s matchup with the Cardinals and games with the Brewers on May 2-5.

If this aggravates you, DishTV (888-830-7144) is running a $39.99 special for 220 channels.
