Running Backs that went over 2K

Post by mattash »

With all the Shoemaker talk going on thought it would be cool to see a list of all the 2K plus backs and what year

Oak Hill:
2010: Westen Hale
1994: Bill Potter
1976: John Williams

I know that Oak Hill was had at least two more since 1950 but I would have to track them down.

Portsmouth, Ironton and burg has legit reason why they didn’t have any back in the day up to now.
1. Portsmouth played bigger tougher teams better defenses but always had a 1000 back, just look at some on the backs that went thru Portsmouth and went D-I.
2.ironton had more than 1back rotation.
3 burg had three good backs every year during miller coaching all had 600 plus yards per back!
4. All three played up or bigger better defenses.

Sciotoville East had a quarterback, Justin Crager, who went well over 2k. There were several games in a row he was over 300. Id love to see those stats if someone had them. They had just lost belveale, their RB the year before, so he was literally their entire offense. What was that, 2012?

Edit, found those stats
Gp. Att. Yds. Avg. Per/g. Ln
10 281 2268 8.07 226.8 97

The running back for Oak Hill was actually John Williams' brother Tim Williams. I believe he ran for 2,093 yards. He played at Marshall.

Sure that isn't Tim Williams from 1976. I graduated with Tim and Jon Williams. Both were standouts in BB but Tim played rb that year.

oneoak....a rb from the 50s might be the late Olen McCorkle. According to folks, he was a blur back then. If he turned the corner....bye bye.

Unioto has never had a 2000 yard rusher. Really stinks that Carroll got hurt last year had 1300 plus think he could have done it.

Shoemaker is at 1481 with 3 to play in the regular season so needs about 175 or so in each game to get it. He is a special player hope he makes it happen.

From 2008 Adena had Buddy Barnes with 1839 while Jimmy Starr also rushed for 918 on same team.

In 2010 Reid Hutchison rushed for 1813 yds and then followed that up his senior season with 2340 yards and 32 TD

I’m sure there were others from Adena in the early 70’s. I’m certain that Buttons Pettiford went well over 2000 in 1972, I think, but I don’t have a total. I have been told that it was most likely over 3000 and he rarely played in 4th quarters of games. Adena beat Amanda that year 72-6 while Amanda was ranked in the top 10 in the State
