Edison's Other Star

Tommy Grady isn't the only Div I prospect at Huntington Beach (Calif.) Edison. The talented quarterback does get most of the headlines and deservedly so- he could be the best pure passer in the country but running back Andy Avila is the real deal as well.

Avila rushed 28 times for 229 yards and four touchdowns in Edison's 44-20 win over Capistrano Valley over the weekend. The running back has great quickness, is very shifty and finishes his runs well. He doesn't shy away from contact and has the speed to score from anywhere on the field.

Avila is a three-star running back as rated by TheInsiders.com and the 85th best running back nationally. Oregon is Avila's favorite but he has not been offered a scholarship by Oregon
