Why Top 40 in Football: "I am the best fullback in Mississippi. I am the best at blocking and being a dominate player in the game. I can change the game around, and there are not too many fullbacks who can do that."
"We will use him at fullback, h-back, and he will get in some snaps at tight end," added South Panola head coach, Lance Pogue. "He is a 6' 1", 230 pounder who has a great deal of strength and is very explosive. He is just a true old fashion fullback, just rugged. We did not use him much at running the ball last year because of Tig, but if there is a team looking for an old fashion fullback, Reuben fits the bill."
