Phenoms Week 6

RB Zach Young of Doherty

This week running backs from across Colorado ran wild as multiple players posted 200 yard rush games.

Prairie View, currently 4-2, is on a four game winning streak and much of this can be attributed to the play of junior running back R.J. Ramirez. This week in a 41-22 win over Westminster the explosive runner rushed for 223 yards and two scores.

After being upset last weekend Silver Creek turned things around with a 63-25 win over Northridge.
