Arizona's Three-Headed Monster

A few days ago, the Arizona Daily Star caught up with Arizona's three running backs: Nic Grigsby, Keola Antolin, and Greg Nwoko.

The three spent a lot of quality time together this offseason only to emerge under their self-described nickname: "Three-Headed Monster."

The Arizona Wildcats three running backs are presenting a united front in the weeks leading up to their Sept. 3 season opener at Toledo.

They seem to be happy, finally, with their roles.

Grigsby will serve as the team's first-stringer, with the shifty Antolin backing him up. For the second straight year, the bruising Nwoko will take over in short-yardage and red-zone situations.

"We call ourselves the three-headed monster," said Grigsby, a senior. "Our goal is to have three 1,000-yard rushers. It's something the school's never had.

"We like running the pill; we like running the rock. There's nothing selfish going on."
