No foe is too large for Mizzou’s Lawrence

By StlToday.com. COLUMBIA, MO – Kendial Lawrence, Mizzou’s 5-foot-9 No. 2 tailback, can sing the advantages of being a little guy with the ball.

“It’s easier to get through holes or make people miss,” Lawrence said. “That’s an advantage of being short.”

Of course, another responsibility that falls to the tailback in Mizzou’s spread offense is sometimes having to stay back to block, a reality that occasionally pits Lawrence up against a charging linebacker who may be six inches taller and 40 pounds heavier. Again, Lawrence thinks he has the edge.
