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.

That run that JoJo had against Licking Valley was by far the best run I have ever seen.

If you are going on track that is a totally different sport. I have the tape of that playoff game, which ever Hunt that was and he didn't outrun anyone. He was in the backfield practically everytime he got the ball.

As would I. I'm sure we can find it somewhere. That Portsmouth team from 2000 was a fun team to whatch. I thought that they were good enough to be the state champions but they just fell one game short. Does anyone remember the Ironton game that year? Portsmouth totally dominated them. That game was capped off by a fumble return by Antonio Malone that was I think around 98 yards? Amazing play.

Drew Cannon......are you serious?

West shut him down and totally dominated that game.........I also believe that we won 34-0

If you are that good you should at least be able to move the ball

I agree with 91blue14 especially with some of the names mentioned on here??!!??
Donnie was the best player on the field every game he played in hs even at Beaver Local.
Some names are very puzzling, all were good but the topic is best from SEO last five years. JoJo was explosive if he got going. I think Gaiters was just as explosive but played on a more rounded team. Frye was another good one. Based on watching OSU' spring games Marcus Williams' name should be on here but he was used primarily on "d' at Ironton. He was an intimidator.

If not for getting hurt a his freshman and sophmore year...I think you can add Ricky Henderson from East on the list for the Tartans and even the combo of Bradford and Hoover this year for the Tartans. Hoover had over 1,000 yards and Bradford would have had over 1,000 if not for tearing his ACL against SG.
