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.

JoJo Parker was a very good back, but before him was possibly the best back I've seen in Akia Brown. Just the prototypical sized back to go with 4.4-4.5 speed, great vision, yes he played on some really good teams. He also received a bunch of offers across the board including a quite a few from D1 schools. Akia's problem like some of the guys listed and some of the guys to come in this area and even at the same school is getting the grades. Akia had a ton of god given talent and I'll be honest he said Clifford didn't even make him work hard and he just showed up and was that good. Big back, speed and vision, seen him play quite a bit and seen JoJo play as well hands down for me it's Akia and JoJo is probably a distant #2.

NY is known for their running backs and these three are just a few in the last few years that have been great backs for the buckeyes

Akia’s son is quite the player for Wheelersburg now.

For that matter... no mention of Drew Cannon from New Lexington?

George McAfee from Ironton should be the best or close to it. Since he is in the College Football Hall of Fame and the NFL Hall of Fame. Was the second player taken in the NFL Draft by the Bears in 1940.
