Colorado high school football fans are very familiar with Chery Creek senior back Milo Hall. Over his career for the Bruins few players have made more big plays than the very quick 5-9 185 pound back. Friday night in a win over Valor Christian, Hall showed his toughness carrying the ball 32 times in a 33-17 victory over defending state champ Valor Christian.
The game had greater resonance for Hall and his Bruins in that it ended a 28 game in state winning streak for Valor Christian. Hall, against one of the state’s best defenses, rushed for 197 yards and a score in a game that saw the Bruins come from behind and win.
Hall, who holds offers from Wyoming, New Mexico State and Northern Colorado, continues to gain interest from multiple, primarily mid-major schools. Hall hit the Colorado State Tulsa game two ago and plans to attend when Colorado hosts UCLA next week. Hall, a perfect college third down back, who also has the skills to play slot, hopes a Colorado offer comes, stating “I don’t know yet. We will see when I go up next week! Hopefully a few new schools will show interest this week.”
More schools need to show interest, especially the Buffs and the Rams. Hall, who has breakaway speed, balance and escapability, showed clearly last night that he has the strength and endurance to handle touches at the next level.
