Dillon Baxter Long Touchdown Run Sparks Comparison

The 2010 USC football season is barely in its infancy with the first days of spring ball wrapping up this past weekend. However, that has not stopped the cameras and the media from clamoring about a possible star in the making out in La La land.


Freshman running back Dillon Baxter technically should still be in high school, but despite his young age he is making headlines around the USC campus for all the right reasons. His performance at spring practice was so outstanding this weekend that Baxter had new Trojans head coach Lane Kiffen comparing the young man to former USC great Reggie Bush.

After watching the video, Lane Kiffen may want to to quell some of his lofty praise. While Baxter's run was impressive, one must remember this play took place towards the end of practice. And the guys falling all over themselves in the secondary are actually walk-on players. Not exactly he was breaking some off for Taylor Mays and company.
