Americas high school is known for running backs, I believe they will have a sleeper this year, who know one has heard of and will be the newcomer that will take the high school 6A by storm.....
Ever heard of Deion Hankins? No need for this thread to be honest lol
Deion Hankins from Parkland and Gerber from Pebble Hills
Hankins and Gerber.
#22 is a beast yeeeep in el paso... I think you know dat Mr wolf. EL PASO, you will hear about this kid you can believe that. I do think, hell no, I know he is a better Back then Hankins but wont put up Hankins numbers because of the carrys. But hey man stop playing around and bring that young man to the Boot or back East so he can know what getting banged on is all about. Yeah I know he stay active but You seen what happened to them Fields boys, they had learn how to play football all over again when they met competition.
****Correction**** Since he was a freshman, he ran for 100 plus yards in his first game as a freshman. On the weak district argument, didn't Deion run for 3k as a sophomore against a "weak district" that's what hes supposed to do right? not Deion's fault Hanks, and Horizon can't stop anyone. He also ran for 167 yards against a four-star led LB and very athletic defense this fall. There is no comparison, yes the Gerber kid is talented but isn't a complete package like Hankins, Deion is the best FBS prospect EP has seen in awhile and is in a league of his own in my opinion. Deion is what a true legit FBS talent looks like.
Garrett Slaughter from Coronado will make some noise.
Eastwood has a Stud Running Back who has been on Varsity since his Sophomore Year #21 Rios that kid is a Beast
Meaning Coronado sucks?
In my opinion Caleb Gerber is the best running back next season!
It just depends on the offense this year. I think he has a lot of talent. It will be fun to watch.
Don't forget about Nick Reyes from Socorro and Dorian Lewis from Andress. Reyes is listed as a FB and just recently got 2nd team All-state as such. Dorian is a heck of a runner also.
If were talking about the best RB in the city, then really only two names should be mentioned and that would be Hankins and Gerber. I have Hankins above Gerber but honestly I have it closer than most would I believe. Hankins has the size and that is important but Gerber has the Speed, quickness, balance and vision. I would not be surprised at all actually if Gerber rushed for more yards than Hankins next year.
Nick Reyes from Socorro is definetley something else
PH will have to replace 4 starters upfront. They do have Carmona returning and he a unanimous all district selection as a jr. They will rely on Fabio Novoa (6'5 240) and Sabian Sandoval (5'10 295) to hopefully give him some holes.
Sleepers for 6A will be Taj Crenshaw & Tate Jernigan from Franklin
....As in the playcalling or offense did not suit his running style maybe?
Very interesting that El Paso Times just announced their All-city teams and Caleb Gerber & Dorian Lewis got first team RB while Hankins and Zubiate got 2nd team.
