Readers of Dreadnaught know that USC fullback Stanley Havili is a favorite. Beginning with his recovery from a broken leg, suffered in 2006, to his outstanding play against Idaho last season. Now the Trojan has been profiled in the WaPo:
With Havili leading the way — often executing what is known in Trojans lingo as a “surgery” blocking technique — USC’s three leading rushers last season combined to average 6.6 yards per carry. But to limit Havili’s contribution to the Trojans’ offense by painting him as a fullback in the traditional sense (simply a burly road grader) would not do justice to the player who amassed the fourth-most receptions and receiving yards on the team in 2007.
“He’s versatile; he is our offense,” junior running back Stafon Johnson said of Havili. “Our offense runs through him because he can do so many things.”
