Randy Bell doesn't see him self as either a power back or a speed back.
"I sort of say I'm the all-in-one back," Bell said.
Bell does have some speed. The 5-foot-10, 230-pound veteran running back from Carson-Newman College also has considerable power.
That was on display last weekend in the Danger's 53-50 victory over the Texas Revolution at the Heartland Events Center. Bell finished the night with 85 yards on 15 carries, including a 5-yard touchdown run.
His most impressive play was when he ran over a Revolution defender in the fourth quarter that help set up a Danger touchdown.
"Randy has been doing it for years," Danger coach Mike Davis said. "He just runs hard. He hasn't lost a beat. He still runs like he's 25. He's a load.
"He stays healthy He knows how to take care of his body."
Bell, 33, finished his college career at Carson-Newman College in Jefferson, Tenn., in 2003. He signed with the Cleveland Browns of the NFL, but took some time away from football after he was cut.
After that, he played with the Lexington Orangemen, the Rock River Raptors, the Milwaukee Bonecrushers, the River City Rage in St. Louis and the Green Bay Blizzard.... Click here for the full article
