Lavon Coleman (5'11/210) steps on to the field and has the look of a premier running back. From the thick legs to the chiseled torso, Coleman is built to carry the rock. Once the game starts, he doesn't disappoint. Blessed with excellent balance, strength and vision as well as quick feet, Coleman can fight through the first line of tacklers to consistently rip off long runs despite not having breakaway track speed.

Coleman was held out of last week's game for precautionary reasons with a thigh bruise, and Lompoc's head coach Andrew Jones seems to be making a concerted effort to limit the wear and tear on Coleman during the regular season. All that said, Coleman still ripped off nearly 200 yards in under 20 carries in the first game of the season against Arroyo Grande.

Here are some of the highlights of him in action, but if you want to watch the full game and get an idea of how Coleman can wear down a defense, all of FOX Sports West's Prepzone games are archived for viewing (Click Here).
