|NORTHWEST MISSISSIPPI'S BOBBY FRANKLIN UTILIZES THE
The crafty Mississippian has carved a spectacular 181-48-6 log during his tenure in the rugged Miss. Conference.
In 2000, despite playing under strict penalties imposed by the conference, Franklin employed a very useful passing game starring undersized Will Hall (Murray State signee) at quarterback and Anton Paige (Texas Tech signee) doing most of the catching. Hall connected on 248 of 366 passes for 3982 yards and 48 touchdowns. Paige caught 64 passes for 1237 yards and 18 scores. Hall once hit on 9 TDs in one game for a national JC record.
Last year the Rangers had a decent season finishing with a 7-3 record as the passing attack accounted for nearly 1,000 more yards than the ground game. Freshman, Bobby Robison, a 6-3, 210-pound gem, tossed for 2285 yards on 154 of 311 passes and 20 TDs.
His favorite receiver was Durrell Robinson (with an "n"; signed with West Virginia), who garnered 46 receptions for 846 steps and 10 tallies. Robison will be back this year and should have some fine receivers if Tony Jackson and Antonio Hill return.
In 1999, Franklin had Jason Johnson at QB and Omar Rayford at receiver. Johnson threw for 20 touchdowns and Rayford caught 12 of them.
In 1998, QB John Holmes topped the Miss. Conference in passing with 2,232 yards and 21 scores. Andre Heard was on the receiving end of 46 passes for a whopping 942 yards and 9 TDs.
One thing for sure, Mississippi Conference foes had better recruit some pretty solid defensive backs if they want to have a prayer of stopping Franklin and his high-flying aerial attack.
JAYHAWK CONFERENCE HAS THE TAILBACKS
Given to JCFootball.com by knowledgeable Jayhawk Conference Fan.
It's a given that the Jayhawk Conference will never have quarterbacks and wide receivers that produce the numbers that teams in California produce every season.
The reason being that the Jayhawk teams love to run -- for the most part. Not so much three yards and a cloud of dust, but 30 yards and six points!
The conference has an abundance of D1A talent returning at the tailback position for 2002.
Consider the following sophomores:
Tyson Thompson (Soph.)
Damien Nash (RS Fresh.)
