FOUR & MORE: Best Inland Area RBs
PREP FOOTBALL 2016
BEST INLAND AREA RUNNING BACKS
1. Stephen Carr, Sr., Fontana Summit — Raw combination of power and speed makes this five-star recruit the must-watch player in the Inland Area this season. Rushed for nearly 2,000 yards as the SkyHawks advanced to the CIF-Southern Section Central Division semifinals.
2. Malik Walker, Sr., Corona — Quietly produced a terrific junior year against the toughest league around, totaling 22 touchdowns and more than 1,000 offensive yards as the Panthers’ go-to guy.
3. Miles Reed, Sr., Corona Centennial — Was the bruising understudy to J.J. Taylor last year, and gained 540 yards and loads of respect for the CIF-SS Inland Division champions.
4. Branden Rankins, Sr., San Bernardino Aquinas — There’s a very real possibility that he’s the best running back of the bunch. Time and college coaching will tell the tale.
Travis Dye, Sr., Norco — Provided balance in the running game last year, now counted to move the pile every down.
Duy Tran-Sampson, Sr., Claremont — Rushed for 1,600-plus yards for a team that failed to make the playoffs.
Malik Flowers, Sr., Fontana Miller — Has the weight of Rebels entire offense resting upon his shoulders.
Lita Palmer, Sr., Temecula Valley — Small but mighty, is dangerous inside and outside the tackles.
