Coachspeak: “He’s a special runner. When you look at his body type, you wouldn’t expect it, doing what he’s done as far as the physical standpoint with the number of carries and yards he’s been able to put together in a career,” Lucas coach Scott Spitler said. “When he gets that ball in his hands, he’s a different person and very focused and runs extremely hard. He’ll be the first one to tell you that his success has been as a result of the guys he’s had up front in his career. He’s a very unselfish person.”
