Who is the Top High School Football Running back to come out of Greensboro/Guilford County??? Who would be on your Top Ten List?

We have been looking at the quarterbacks this week and now it is about time to start turning our attention toward the running back position…

The top two or three or four, for this upcoming 2016 season, look to be Javon Leake from Page High School, Jarious Drayton(Ragsdale HS) and Ezra Perkins(Dudley HS) with guys like Myron Frazier at Northern Guilford, plus Travis Steele and Jamari Palbusa at High Point Andrews as well as others ready to hit the scene hard….

Now for our look at the Top Runningbacks out of the past from Greensboro and Guilford County and we will list a Top Ten and others to go with them and see how your list stacks up with this and be sure to bring on and add-in the names we are leaving out…

Top Ten Runningbacks from Greensboro and Guilford County over the past say 30-40 years, or so….

1)Ted Brown(High Point Andrews)
2)Toney Baker(Ragsdale HS)
3)Anthony Saunders(Western Guilford HS)
4)TJ Logan(Northern Guilford HS)
5)Ricky Adams(Ragsdale HS)
After the Top Five you can sort of run wild and and turn it loose, but with Brown, he was unreal for Andrews, Baker set all kinds of National Rushing records, Saunders set state and national rushing and TD records, Logan ran for and was part of three straight state championship teams, Adams was a part of two state title teams for the Tigers and on we go to our next five…

6)Let’s TIE them up here with Reggie Gallaspy(Southern Guilford) and Ernie Woods(Southeast Guilford)
7)Bobby Hedrick(Eastern Guilford)
8)say a Jimmy Walden or Jimmy Womack at Northeast Guilford
9)Curtis Johnson or a Mike Porter at Smith
10)Brian Williams(Southwest Guilford)

And you’ll want to look at guys like Lee Rouson and Marvin Johnson from Page, Herman Thacker or Cessie Love from Grimsley, take your pick from over the years at Dudley, he was more of a quarterback, but I liked him as an RB, Jamele Mack from High Point Central; hard to remember a ton of key RB’s from Northwest Guilford, but that has most of our Guilford County runningbacks and schools in the mix…

Let’s see how you stack them up and is Ted Brown the best RB ever from Guilford County, or is it time to adjust this list?????
