James Cook & Zamir White as Poe & Finn

James Cook and Zamir White were a package deal at Georgia, so it’s fitting to pair them with Poe and Finn from the newest trilogy of Star Wars movies. Finn was a storm trooper turned into a rebel fighter while Poe was an expert piolet for the rebellion.

They had the ultimate bromance, just like Cook and White seem to have as well.

Both have the utmost respect for each other and play into that when in battle. Cook and White were two different kinds of running backs, but they could merge that into success because they shared the reps.

Poe and Finn were two different fighters with their own style and skills, but they complemented each other when you put them together.

Cook would be Poe as he is the hot shot speedy one, and White would be Finn as he never gives up despite the adversity he had to overcome.

The camaraderie and respect are a big reason we chose to pair them like this because Georgia has to have that in their running back room to find success. For the rebels to win, they too have to give each other their moments so the rebellion as a whole could win.
