FRESH FACES

WHO: LaMarr Glenn. HT/WT: 6-1; 245.

COLLEGE: Florida State.

POSITION: Fullback.

NFL EXPERIENCE: Rookie.

CAREER HIGHLIGHT: Glenn was a four-year letterman at FSU, where he built a reputation for punishing blocks after being switched from linebacker. He played in all but one game during his FSU career

GLORY DAYS: Glenn began his football career in the seventh grade as a nose guard. He went on to star as a linebacker and fullback for Daytona Beach Seabreeze, helping the Sandcrabs reach the state semifinal in 1993. In that game, he scored two TDs, had 12 tackles and a forced fumble, but his team lost.

BRUSH WITH GREATNESS: Glenn had a chance encounter with Andre Rison in Atlanta. Rison recognized him as a football player and encouraged him to keep playing hard.

TO MAKE THE TEAM: Glenn will have to beat out fellow first-year players Kevin McLeod and Landon Smith for the backup fullback spot behind Mike Alstott. The position is wide open with the departure of veteran Lorenzo Neal, and blocking ability will be the key factor.
