Scott Porter: What is the toughest part about playing the RB position in your opinion?
Richard Medlin: I would say one of the toughest parts is that people expect you to run and block at the same time and they expect you to always make a big play. Every time the ball is in your hands they expect you to do something big. They don’t realize how hard it can be and how much you have to depend on execution from others to help you make the big play. I would say to answer this questions that you’re expected to be very independent on the field and find a way to make the play no matter what.
