I can't think of an OUTSTANDING RB from southeastern Ohio but I think Jared Pendleton from west is one of the best I have seen in the SOC the last 5 years

Mike hunt from peake has to make the list. . . one of the fastest and best tackle breakers i've seen in a long time. . . .
jo jo parker was good
i dont see hyland making the list. . . . but KC christian when healthy could make things happen with his speed
williams, and lewis from ironton. . .and also pendleton from west. .
but still the best two were parker and hunt. . . . IMHO

One of the top considerations has to be Trent Reynolds from Minford. He may not have amassed multiplied 1,000s of yards, but he was right around 1,000 his junior and senior year, plus he was the top receiver, I believe, this past year. He had a nice average per carry ratio and absolutely punished whoever was tackling him. He also set Minford''s season record for TDs this year. Throw in heart and you have an all around great back.

i think two of the best back would have to be jojo parker-portsmouth and jared pendleton-portsmouth west

jojo was one of the most explosive backs i have ever seen

pendleton was all state two times and honorable mention once, he was also ranked as the #72 best runing back his senior year on espn.com

I would have to mention Brad Young and Thomas Mayes from Wellston they were both good . I think Jo Jo Parker was probably the best in this area though.JMHO.

If we're talking the last 5 years, JoJo Parker can't be included. Have to go 10 years. I know that seems impossible, but it HAS been that long. Same for Brad Young, and maybe Thomas Mayes, but I can't remember for sure.

Mayes was a senior during the 2002 season so he probably shouldn't be included. Young's last season was 2001. Time flies.

JoJo Parker played at Fairmont State for a while...maybe 2 years. He was there with Jeff Bolen from Jackson.

JoJo Parkers last season was 2002. That was only 6 years.

FalconFan,

I think Locos meant that Parker played more than 5 years ago. By going back to a nice round number like 10, then Parker could be included.

OZZIE,

I was under the impression that JoJo didn't finish out his eligibility at Fairmont. If he did, then that's my mistake. I know he was quite successful when he did play though. I'll never forget the few times that I was lucky enough to watch JoJo play while he was at Portsmouth. That run against Licking Valley in the 2002 playoffs is probably still the best TD run that I have seen in high school football.

OVCfan: I'm sorry but Mike Hunt would not be one of the top 5. When he played against Burg he didn't break many tackles, actualy I'd say he didn't break one and didn't out run any Pirates. I actualyl believe alot of Pirates were out running him.

Dewey Cantrell and Derek Beaver of South Gallia would have to be included. During their senior season (2006) they led SG to their best record in school history (8-3). This was the young program's 2nd straight trip to the post season. Cantrell and Beaver were both probably 150 lbs. soaking wet but they could flat out scoot and they were tough as anyone pound for pound. Ask anyone who really knows D6 football in the area about these two and I'm sure they will tell you all about them.

You are correct!! I just looked it up on there site. He was ther leading rusher and scorer in 2003. He played on 9 games in 04, and 05. Doesnt show anything for 2006 on him.
