Looking ahead to next season in 806 football, we have some big time tailbacks returning to the gridiron at the tailback position. These tailbacks should garner a lot of more interest as the summer camps and the 2018 football season rolls around. Here are our top ten tailbacks retiring to 806 football play:
#1 KING DOERUE- TASCOSA REBELS C/O 2019
*OFFERED A DI SCHOLARSHIP TO KANSAS*
He has all the tools to be a special tailback on the next level, and that’s why Kansas came in and offered him early before everyone else does. King had some great numbers in an offense where he didn’t get the bulk of the touches and he will do some severe damage next season.
#2 JASEAN BARROW- RANDALL RAIDERS C/O 2020
Jasean has came of of the radar and looks to be gaining some serious interest around the nation. Barrow had an exceptional Sophomore season for Randall and will look to have another stellar season that may get him some offers.
#3 SETH DIXON- HEREFORD WHITEFACES C/O 2019
Seth was Honorable Mention in 5A with over 1,500 yards rushing and over 300 yards receiving in two games. If you ask him, he’d tell you that he would want his team to make the playoffs, along with him upping his stats for the Herd.
#4 KALEB KING- CAPROCK HIGH SCHOOL C/O 2019
Kaleb is a dual-threat tailback with some elite speed. Over 1,000 total yards in 2017, combined with some great numbers at the Opening last year will have Kaleb ready to roll in 2018 with a coulee of offers as well.
#5 KALEB MANUEL- CORONADO HIGH SCHOOL C/O 2020
Kaleb came into the rotation after an unfortunate injury to Jarrod Compton and he shined the rest of the season. He has a quick first step and is very tough to bring down in open space. With two more years to come and a great offensive scheme, the good performances will continue for the Mustang.
#6 JEREMIAH DOBBINS- ESTACADO C/O 2020
Jeremiah also took more of the load in his Sophomore season and ended up on 1st team All-District for the Estacado Matadors. Special talent that gets in the hole and out quickly, he will have another great two years for Shavers and the Mats’!
#7 DAMONTRAREIS LACY- MONTEREY PLAINSMEN C/O 2020
Speed…Speed….He has a lot of it. Quick feet and some great agility and awareness accompany this young class of 2020 prospect! Be on the lookout for a great season for Lacy.
#8 RHETT MAYNARD- AMARILLO HIGH SCHOOL C/O 2019
#9 BRADEN DURST- PANHANDLE HIGH SCHOOL C/O 2019
#10 LUKE LATIMER- CHILDRESS HIGH SCHOOL C/O 2019
#10B NEHEMIAH MARTINEZ- NEW DEAL LIONS C/O 2020
Keep an eye on Seth Porter from Estacado HS. He is a great young man and if he comes back healthy, lookout!! Chris Gerber is a dual-threat QB and would’ve been #2 if he was just a tailback!
