Maurice Carthon is an interesting choice at fullback when you consider other players like Lorenzo Neal, Larry Csonka, and Mike Alstott.
Here’s what King had to say:
Came to the Giants the first year I covered them, 1985, from the USFL’s Trump-owned New Jersey Generals. What an amazing year. He started 19 games for the Generals, including a playoff game, then 18, including two playoff games, for the Giants, in a 10-month span. Three weeks off between seasons. A rock-solid blocker and totally unselfish, two crucial traits for a fullback.
