Super Snorweah: Rutgers Commit Ignites

Fairless Hills (Pa.) Pennsbury running back took Downingtown (Pa.) West to the pain in the playoffs Friday night. The Rutgers verbal commitment dropped jaws everywhere with 429 rushing yards and seven touchdowns at a rate of 15.9 yards per carry.

Running back Charles Snorweah is on the hook for a lot more than pizza when it comes to rewarding his offensive line for Friday night.

In a playoff victory over Downingtown (Pa.) West, the Rutgers verbal commit scored seven touchdowns to go along with a Madden-like 429 rushing yards for Fairless Hills (Pa.) Pennsbury.

"I owe my line so much for this whole season," said Snorweah, who was over 1,000 yards before taking the field this weekend. "Our running back and our receivers, everyone is playing a part in our system. I want them to know how much I appreciate what they do."

The 5-foot-11, 170-pound athlete led Pennsbury into the second round of the playoffs, including the touchdown to put the game out of reach.

"I didn't know what to expect," he said. "I knew I was having a good game. I thought I had like 200 yards or close to 300 or something like that. When they first told me, I didn't think about it because it was still a close game. Once we sealed it with another touchdown run, then it started to sink in."

Snorweah committed to Rutgers in the spring as a running back, but also has interest in playing defensive back. Whatever his future holds, he is proud to represent his future home while excelling at his current one.

"It feels good to be known as a Rutgers commit," Snorweah said. "Obviously I'm a big family guy, and Rutgers is a part of my family. It's good to represent my family and show that I'll do everything I can to help my team on the field."

As to replicating Friday nigiht's statistics in the Big Ten, Snorweah isn't writing it off.

"Don't say never," Snorweah said. "We'll have to see."
