JCFootball.com - Top Running Backs

SEATTLE - A month into the 2011 football season, here is a look at some of the top JUCO running backs in the country and how they have fared so far...

Southwestern RB Aaron Harris - After three games, the Panthers are 2-1 and a big reason is the hard-running of Harris who has amassed 274 yards and 5 touchdowns. Harris missed the entire 2010 football season with a knee injury, but seems to have not missed a beat and has some D-1 opportunities already and more could be on the way.


Orange Coast RB Dominic Betts - The talented freshman has been outstanding for the Pirates leading the team and state with 545 yards rushing to go along with 5 touchdowns. At 5'10", 195 pounds, Betts has outstanding quickess and a burst once he gets into the open field. Definitely a player to keep an eye on the rest of the season.


L.A. Harbor RB Theron West - One of the more explosive players in the country, West has proven to be a very good replacement for the loss of John White. So far this season, West has posted 451 yards and 5 touchdowns, leading the Seahawks to a 3-0 record.


L.A. Southwest RB Ezekiel Graham - Graham rank third in the state in rushing with 383 yards and also has 2 touchdowns.


Hartnell RB Alvin Jelks - The tough-running Jelks has been solid so far, rushing for 255 yards and 4 touchdowns in just while leading Hartnell to a 1-1 record.


Fort Scott RB Martese Jackson - In four games, Jackson has posted 488 yards and 3 touchdowns while leading the Greyhounds to a 2-2 record.


Blinn RB Marion Grice - One of the more gifted runners in the country, Grice has lived up to his billing as an All-American candidate posting 430 yards and 8 touchdowns in four games including an amazing 241 yards and 4 touchdowns in a season-opening win over Fort Scott.


Arizona Western RB Damien Williams - Williams has eased the loss of All-American Reggie Bullock, by rushing for 385 yards and 6 touchdowns in helping to lead Arizona Western to a 3-0 record.


Palomar RB Chad Dobbins - The Comets are off to a 3-0 start and look poised to make a big run to the state playoffs behind the productivity of Dobbins who has put up 232 yards and 2 touchdowns so far this season.


Butte RB Tromaine Dennis - Dennis, a sophomore, is a big reason the Roadrunners are off to a 2-0 start with his 244 yards rushing and 4 touchdowns.


Louisburg RB Rasheed Williams - Williams is already proving to be a player to watch three games into the season, leading the Hurricanes to a 3-0 record by totaling 538 yards and 11 touchdowns.


Southwest Mississippi RB Vintavious Cooper - In three games, Cooper has 389 yards and 4 touchdowns for SMCC.
