(WLTX) --- Andre Ellington's 68-yard scamper against Auburn led to the Tigers first touchdown of the night. It also showed Ellington's tremendous balance as he used his left hand to keep himself from going down to the turf.
Ellington said running backs coach Tony Elliott instituted a drill that forces his players to use their free hand to keep their balance. Ellington says he always wondered if those drills served a purpose.
After that long run, part of his 228-yard rushing output, Ellington will have a different appreciation the next time Elliott asks him to work on the balancing act.
