"The young man is an incredible athlete", said Caldwell head coach Scot Lee. He is 210 pounds and still hasn't filled out yet. College recruiters always ask me if he is a slasher or a power back or a speed guy and my answer is "Yes" to all. There is no body fat on Centarius".
Donald broke into the Spartan line up when he was a sophmore and in just seven games ran for 1,345 yards. The following year he topped the two thousand yard mark finishing with 2,020 and 32 total touchdowns. He averaged 9.5 yards per carry.
"Centarius hasn't put up the eye popping numbers this season said Lee. It's hard to do that when the opposing teams are stacking 9 guys in the box and that is what we have seen each game. We lost our top 2 WR's to graduation and our big play guy Chris Cloman just returned to the lineup last week. We are hoping that with his presence things will open back up and we can make teams pay for stacking the line".
Through seven games this season Donald has 670 rush yards and scored 10 touchdowns on 110 carries. "When we have the game in hand, I rack him", said Lee. All of those yards are crunch time yards, no mop up yardage".
Instead Donald watched ULM take care of ASU on ESPN2 and soon after gave his solid verbal to Coach Leahy and the Warhawk staff.
"Coach Leahy came to see Centarius last year against Oak Grove and after the game he was laughing. I said what is it coach? He said, "There were no punts in that game". Caldwell won the game 53-51 over the Tigers and Donald had 320 yards of offense.
LSU, TCU, Mississippi State, Oklahoma, Louisiana Tech, and teams as far as BYU have come by the school for film on Centarius", said Lee. I think he likes what ULM is doing and wants to stay close to home so ULM is a great fit for Centarius".
Below are 2 short clips of Centarius. Look for many more highlights soon as Warhawk Nation will bring you clips from Donald's 2000 yard rush season.
