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.
