Football practice update: Bright set at fullback

Steven Bright (VM/ B. Wiseman)

Steven Bright is not a lab rat. What he is doing this week during Vanderbilt's football practices is not a test. It's for real. Bright, who backed up Jay Cutler last season as the No. 2 quarterback, worked out at fullback and H-back this spring. As practices began this week, he was running with the first-string squad at fullback, and that appears to be where he will remain.

"No question, he's the guy," running backs coach Kenny Carter said. "You don't take a guy who is your No. 2 quarterback and not make him your No. 1 fullback." At 6-4, 235 pounds, Steven Bright (photo at right by B. Hufalar) packs enough punch to hold his own when it comes to laying a lick and receiving one. He also likes contact and has never been shy about lowering a shoulder. Coaches... Recommended Stories
