Best Running Backs from SEOPS Coverage Area in History

Post by THE G.O.A.T. » Tue Apr 28, 2009 7:28 pm

Also, I was thinking pendelton from his sophomore to senior year against minford never had less than 180 yds and 3 tds. He seemed to really put it on minford. His junior year was crazy I know he ended up with over 300 in the game and if I'm not mistaken had 2 or 3 long ones called back.

I dont think overall but I remember one game in which Kevin bass had well over 250 yards and 3 TDs against Portsmouth in 05. He won the Archie Griffin Player of the week for the State of Ohio.

Well if I was sticking to the last 5 years, I'd say Gaiters from Zanesville, and Frye from Logan. Going back 10 or more, I'd say JoJo Parker was the best I've seen but I'm biased there, I never saw anyone stop him though. I also liked Jeremiah Bolden (Portsmouth), the small speedy back Waverly had in the early 2000's, and I'm sure many more I'll think of when I'm not quite so sleepy.

yeah burg your thinking cody hunt. . he was the smaller younger brother of mike who graduated the year earlier, trust me i played in that game, we were quite faster at the rb positions than anything the burg had, not that that made a diff in the game. . . .we just had a real bad gameplan, that offense was nasty. . . nothing prepared us for that offense all year. . the four wide and dives. . ugh

How can Portsmouth fans for get about BOOMER?

Seen them both, and in my mind Jo Jo takes a backseat to Boomer and Troy Parker, who as a Sophmore was leading the NCAA in rushing and scoring going into week 6 when he tore his knee up.

If you wanna talk 25 years, Jermon Jackson is far and away the best back from SEO. Bobby Brice would be number 2. Michael Parker was the best Parker of the bunch in Portsmouth. That kid was a freight train!

Roush was a great player, but Justin Gail was a level above him in my opinion. Roush had a lot more drive and goal to play at the next level. I would have loved to see Gail play 4 years at OU... he could have been drafted.

Even though he played both QB and RB I would say Jay Edwards from NY was very talented running with the football!

If Jay was a running back for 4 years he would have been one of the best ever at NY.

Yes, JO Jo Played 3 years at FSC.He was decent there. He was starting but a young man from Fl named Wendell Johnson came in and started sharing time with JoJo. He eventually beat him out and JoJo quit the team. Shame, only one year left. Johnson was good. He is in top three all time leading rushers, which is crazy good.Theyve had some good ones, ie Donny Overton who played in the NFL.

The guys I have seen from Chesapeake are:

1) Josh Waugh- His senior season was prety darn good considering he had broke his foot only 8 weeks before the start of the season. He had a full ride from Miami, OH and waited like an idiot for Marshall. He went for around 1,500 yards his senior season with 22 rushing touchdowns. Was the SE District offensive PofY, and was also first team All-State, and Division 5 offensive player of the year. He was a man at 6'2, 200, and ran a 4.5 (he ran a 4.52 at Miami, OH). He could blow past you, run over you, run around you, jump over you, anything. IMO, he is without a doubt the best back I have seen. If Mike Hunt broke tackles, then Josh blew them up.
2) Cody Hunt- He was faster then Mike, and was much more agile. He could do it all, aside from block. Cody was stronger then he looked, and you better get a good shot at him, or he was gone. That is what speerates im from Mike, is his top end speed. Cody was an 11.1 100m runner, while Mike was more like 11.6. Cody also had much softer hands, Mike couldn't catch untill his senior year. I remember Cody making two huge grabs from Luke Beach when he was a sophomore that I had to od a double take. Cody seemed to have a lot more long runs then Mike as well.

Best runningback I have seen is Jo Jo Parker. He was a man playing with boys.

But I would have to go with Jacksons Shane Wolford......2000+yrds 30TDS and Mr. Ohio Football. All names mentioned were some mighty fine RBs but Wolford was in a league of his own with the hardware to show.

Funny to see all those people posting JoJo and now seeing his son with a chance to surpass him. A few names I didn't see brought up was the West hb from 02(Lens?). Cantrell was a great at fullback that year. Also the 3 headed monsters employed by Ironton around 05 maybe and the West team around 08 when Pendleton was a sophomore. Alot of talented back in scioto county over the years. Montavan at Northwest in 2000, Pendletons at West, Valley had a lot of good ones in the late 90s early 00s before we started playing them. I do believe Gaiters might be at the top of the list of guys I've seen play against us, he shreaded some good defenses and scored at will.

Just gonna butt in and say that Braden Bellville should fit into this list somewhere. His freshman year he had 480 yds and 5td as a part time FB. Sophomore year he had 800 yards and around 10 td, as a Full time FB. Last year he had 1826 yds and around 27 td as primary RB. and this year he is sitting at 1,200 i beieve and around 20 TD, HE HAS NEVER HAD LESS THAN 100 YDS IN A PLAYOFF GAME.
