Knowshon Moreno is a superstar in Georgia. “A lot of guys get spotted,” Moreno said. “I do, but not that much. It’s the same old, same old.” That’s just him being modest. Knowshon can’t walk the streets of Athens without getting swarmed, similar to Tim Tebow in Gainesville. These athletes are larger then life.
So much so that Moreno decided to take a couple of weeks off and head back hoe to New Jersey where he could rest and gather himself before the 2008 season. “There’s just so many things coming so fast,” said Georgia defensive line coach Rodney Garner, who recruited Moreno. “People are pulling him in a million different directions. He’s trying to accommodate everybody. He just needed some Knowshon time.”
After consulting with Moreno’s grandmother, among other people, the decision was made that Moreno could benefit from a couple of weeks back home in New Jersey in May.
“We just felt that it would be good for him to go home where he could just be a normal person for a minute and not be Knowshon,” Garner said. “He could go out and go to the movies. He could go bowling. He can just do some normal things that we felt that we needed. After talking to him since he got back, it was just refreshing for him to go home.”
Said Knowshon Moreno: “Everyone was excited to see me. My friends, my coaches. I haven’t changed.”
