With football season fast approaching, we’re looking at the top players at their positions across Pasco County. Call it our big board, if you will, and we’ll be naming the top players from receivers to linemen to kickers. Today: Running backs and defensive backs:
Willie Barrett, Anclote, Sr.
Coming off a 1,400-yard season, this rolling-rock of a runner looks to put up big numbers again for the Sharks.
Trent Crawford, Anclote, Sr.
Gained 333 yards behind Barrett, but his most explosive running plays to the outside.
Noah Siegrist, Hudson, Sr.
Rushed for 656 yards and four TDs in 2012 and should carry the load for the Cobras running attack this season.
Davion Sutton, Fivay, Sr.
Rushed for 1,147 yards and 15 TDs in just eight games (143 ypg) in 2012.
Christian Trinidad, Mitchell, Sr.
Rushed for 785 yards and 10 TDs in just eight games before being sidelined by injury in 2012.
