With Coach Gundy saying that Millard is perhaps the best ball carrier on the squad now. How does his size and speed compare with Owens?
Not James, but geee! To compare players from different eras is not very fair. Steve was four-yards-and-a-cloud-of-dust. Steve was not nearly as big as Millard. Steve was a great athlete in high school at Miami HS, OK. He almost won the state track meet single-handedly. I believe he won both hurdle races and won either the high jump or the long jump while finishing second in the other event. He just missed out on winning the team trophy but a point or two. Steve was not asked to block as Trey is. Steve was the entire offense while Trey is just a weapon. I don't think they can be compared. You could not get by running the I offense today on every down. People would 9-man front you and just stop the running game. But to answer your specific question, Trey is bigger and may be faster. By the time Steve was a senior, he was not real fast. Think of the RB from Stanford two years ago.
I hope he compares more accurately to Mike Alstott or Payton Hillis.
owens was basically the offense..........millard is lucky to touch it despite the pre-season coach hype
