There are only so many reserve defensive tackles who also get to play on the kickoff team and serve as a goal-line fullback.
Put another way, there's only a few Zach Kerrs out there.
The Maryland sophomore earned some attention last week for his work on offense, the latest expansion of his role with the 7-3 Terrapins.
You can read more about the entertaining Kerr in this AOL FanHouse story, but not everything from the interviews made it into that.
One intriguing possibility is that Kerr could actually touch the ball. The possibility of his jersey (No. 69) making him an ineligible receiver hadn't crossed my mind when I asked him if he was open to taking the next step.
It turns out it's a good thing he wouldn't be eligible --- receiving isn't exactly Kerr's thing.
"I’d rather run it than catch it," Kerr said. "If I was given the chance to, I’d rather run it than catch it. It’s a lot easier to take the ball and run around. You anticipate catching, and you’ve got guys who come to college to do that and they drop balls. I didn’t come to college to catch no passes."
He probably didn't come to college to blow up 250-pound linebackers, either, and that happened. Here's guessing a Kerr touchdown celebration would be the most entertaining thing seen at a Maryland football game in a long, long time.
