Duke Leads USC For Duncan

Jela Duncan puts Mallard Creek football first and recruiting second right now. Get the latest on this talented running back here.

Jela Duncan and Mallard Creek are off to a good start in 2011 with wins over Butler and Sun Valley early on.

Duncan played a big role in the win over nationally ranked Butler in week one with over 200 yards rushing and he knows he did not do it alone.

"I could not do anything without my offensive line," Duncan said. "Those guys have blocked well for me and I appreciate that. They know I appreciate them and how they help me."

On each level, running backs cannot be successful without holes to run through. The 5-foot-9, 190 pound running back out of Charlotte, N.C. hopes to take the kind of success he is having now to the next level.

One school stands out above the rest on his current list.

"Duke is my top school because I love all the coaches there. They are going in the right direction.

"South Carolina would be my second school right now behind Duke. I really like them too."

Although Duncan has a clear leader, he is not close to making a decision.

"I am focused on Mallard Creek right now and winning the game on December 13 (state championship)," he said. "I am not going to be committing to any school any time soon. I have to make sure my team comes first."
