I don't see any of our cities running backs receiving their due diligence. Its always about the QB position. What do you all think?
Honestly it is because the majority of offenses out there are centered around the QB you have. The days of running the ball 70-80% of the time are over so that makes the QB more relevant. And it is not just spread offenses. Even pro style offenses are starting to be more revolved around your QB. The running back from Andress is pretty good and just by reading on the forums the kid from Pebble Hills is really making a name for himself this season. Also I believe the kids from Franklin and Coronado are doing pretty well this season. Sorry I don't know their names.
Completely agree. So let's talk standout running backs. I agree, the kid from Andress is a stud. Both backs are studs. I saw some highlights on Pebble Hills back and yes...kid has flare. That entire team is explosive. Of course Mr. Zubiate from Chapin is no slouch. He's like that extra huge RB you create on Madden and set him with 99overall.Lol. Just always been a fan of the running game.
It took the fourth post in this thread for someone to mention Parkland’s Deion Hankins.
Honesty, he’s probably Number 1, 2 and 3 in the city.
1. Deion Hankins - Parkland
2. Caleb Gerber - Pebble hills
3. Seth Dominguez - Franklin
4. Dorian Lewis - Andress
5. Javier Arellano - Canutillo
6. Ezekiel Jones - Eastlake
Maybe a little biased :)
Parkland has two good running backs not only Deion but also #24 Mikko obonan
1. Deion PHS(really hope he bounces back after the injury)
2. Dorian AHS (such great vision and grit)
3. Caleb PHHS(extremely quick and also great vision)
4. Seth FHS(just an all around stud)
5. Zubiate CHS(size matters!!!)
2) Dorian Lewis
Okay...pero me entendieron!!! NEXT!!!
Gerber and Hankins are both Juniors. Next season will be even more explosive for both players. Also Montwoods #23 has the tools to be a really good one as well. He is a sophomore.
As far as this seasons its a Hankins/Gerber 1/2.
By the way who told Chapin that they are allowed to have a locomotive play RB? I remember that man-child from youth football, if I am not mistaken.
Hankins is a grown man hands down. Humble kid great work ethic, the next edric Benson.
Gerber can run, especially behind that offensive line, that's why he plays the position. Is he a complete back though, the jury should still be out. can he catch out of the backfield, does he block effectively?
Dorian Lewis is only a sophomore and plays in a pass first system yet is still averaging 9.3 yards per carry. Do some research.
Zubiate is just big, he won't play RB at the next level cause he's too slow. Almost 0 lateral ability but he's a bull in the open field. Very lazy in pass protection, but a monster on the goal line(He should be Chapin's MLB or DE) forget what benefits the player.
Franklin RB what's his name again....
All this talk about Gerber. He is talented everyone knows this but he needs to hit the weight room everyday and build on his mass. He needs to get to 195lbs to 200lbs this coming offseason for if he doesn't no D1 program is going to offer him.
