Top Short-Yardage RBs in NKY 2018When a team needs tough yards for a first down or a TD, whose number gets called? Some backs make their mark by being quick and fast. They make a move and outrun the defense. Other backs earn their keep by running over the opposition and are asked to make their own way. They make their yards by refusing to go down. When tough yards are needed, their number is called.
Tell us who these hard-nosed backs are and include a link to their Hudl film if you can. I love watching this type of back.Advertisement

At 5' 11" 215 lb, Fullback John Mark Shutt averaged over 5 yards a carry running between the tackles in an offense that didn't produce many yards. He led the Rebels in rushing.

Nathan Bezold from Brossart. He is a bruiser back that carries a few people with him when he goes. Not sure what his yards after contact are but I am sure it is unreal. He averaged 4.8 yards a carry for a total of 270 yards and 1 TD. Touchdown came vs Bellevue (Play 2 on highlight video) where here carried a 4 people into the endzone.

Unbelievable first down machine this past season for the Tigers. As I said in the LB section, he's just an old school hitter. He explodes into the line when he takes the handoff. Aside from that, he's developed soft hands out of the backfield and became a dangerous 3rd down weapon during the stretch run/in the playoffs for Coach Rash.
Strong. Powerful. Dynamic. He will emerge as one of the top players in Northern Kentucky this year.

Jacob Schriver for CovCath. Whenever they needed 2--3 yds for a 1st down, or to plow it into the end zone, he came through.
