Between the Philadelphia Public and Catholic Football Leagues, Philly has always churned out a lot of talen at the skill position. The Class of 2015 features some great talent that produced great numbers during the 2013 season. Preps.com takes a look at five of those running backs.
Kelly ran for 1,668 yards and 11 touchdowns during the 2013 season. He’s one of the more underrated backs in Pennsylvania.
McClenton certified his “big-time” status with 238 rushing yards and 2 rushing touchdowns in helping his team win the 2013 PIAA AAA Championship. McClenton ran for 1,705 yards and 28 touchdowns in 2013. He may not be big in size, but he’s big in production and is tough enough to run up the middle.
Bonner ran for 1,127 yards and 14 touchdowns in 2013. Don’t let the stats fool you, Bonner is a big-time talent. He shares carries with two other running backs who ran for over 800 yards in 2013. Offers from: UConn, Indiana, UMass, Old Dominion, Rutgers, West Virginia and Wisconson.
Zaccheaus ran for 875 yards and 12 touchdowns in 2013 in 2013 while sharing carries with senior Vince Moffett. Offers from: Miami, Pittsburgh, and Temple.
Long before he clocked that 4.45 at a recent Nike Sparq Combine, we already knew Bullock was a beast on the field. Bullock rushed for 2,055 yards and 21 touchdowns during the 2013 season using his blazing speed to run past defenders.
