Last week on the FOX 40 Final Quarter high school football show, hosts Jim Crandell and Kristina Werner revealed a list of the top five runningbacks this season in the CIF Sac-Joaquin Section, according to CalHiSports.com.
Here is what that countdown revealed:
1. Beau Bisharat (Jesuit, Carmichael) 6-2, 200, Sr.
He’s been one of the top recruits in recent years from Jesuit and has committed to Stanford.
2. Deshawn Collins (Grant, Sacramento) 5-9, 175, Sr.
Grant actually could have had two on this list (other is Mike Green), but we went with just the one. Collins rushed for 2,321 yards as a junior.
3. Justin Rice (Central Catholic, Modesto) 6-2, 190, Sr.
He was a big threat last year for D4 state champs and rushed for 2,146 yards with 30 TDs.
4. Mark Paule Jr. (Sierra, Manteca) 5-7, 165, Sr.
As a junior last season, Mark ranked among the state leaders by scoring 43 touchdowns.
5. Evyn Holtz (Rocklin) 5-7, 180, Sr.
The fifth spot was tough, but going with three-year starter who is on one of the section’s best teams.
