Team Georgia 2017 – RB Breakdown
As we are approaching the 2017 Florida-Georgia Future Stars Game, we will take a look and break down the position groups each week for Team Georgia. This game has seen a tremendous amount of top notch talent at all position groups and this year should be no different.
This time we will look at Team Georgia running backs.
The strength of the 6th grade team for Georgia is definitely at the running back position this year. First you have 5-11 and 165lbs Raul “Popo” Aguirre of Stockbridge. He is simple a man child when he is on the field that can run the ball as well as any 6th grader in the country. His side kick is Quinterio “Terio” Lawson of Decatur. He has an amazing combination of speed and power in his 150lbs frame. He runs with attitude and a threat to score every time. Next is Dorian Graham of Fayetteville. He is a Darren Spoles type that is explosive in all phases of the game.
The 7th grade running backs are as talented as any group of backs you will see on any field in the country. Thomas Catellanos of Waycross could very well be the best player in the state of Georgia, and as a running back he is 160lbs but had the 3rd fastest 40 time of all 7th graders this year. Speaking of speed, 150lbs Tylar Belchar of Valdosta ran the fastest time of all 7th graders this year and is an explosive back. Terry Gibson of Atlanta returns after having a huge Future Stars Game in 2016, looking for another big performance. Joining them is the athletic Leon Davis out of Columbus.
The 8th grade backs are led by Myrick Jackson of Columbus. Jackson has good speed and size to be a workhorse. Returning is the workhorse back from Lithonia in Langston White. White is a kid that can help the 8th grade team keep the chains moving. The other back is the athletic Gianni Dorsey from Roswell. He is an ideal back when the team goes to their spread formation.
You should remember the names of the kids on this 6th and 7th grade team in the backfield, as you could be looking at some of the top backs in the country when those kids get to high school.
