If they didn't have enough playmakers already, Bellflower (Calif.) St. John Bosco sophomore running…
Cali Sophomore Runs Wild
At 5'7 and 175 pounds, sophomore running back Sean McGrew of St. John Bosco can get lost behind the Braves' mammoth offensive line that includes the likes of Damien Mama (6'5/370), but if you need to know where to find him, just look in the endzone. That's likely where he'll be standing.
McGrew needed just 17 carries to rack up 367 yards and six touchdowns, and he added a screen pass for another 76 yard score against Corona Centennial, the No. 2 team in SoCal.
Granted McGrew plays behind one of the best offensive lines in the nation, but those were still Husky defensive backs he was running by en route to open field. His low center of gravity and balance is spectacular. He's like trying to tackle a weeble wobble. A weeble wobble who runs a 4.5 forty or better.
McGrew and his Bosco teammates are ranked in the Scout Top 50, and they'll face a significant challenge in trying to knock off De La Salle in California's Open Bowl next week, something no team from SoCal has done in the Open Bowl as De La Salle has won four straight (Centennial knocked off De La Salle in the D1 Bowl game in 2008).
St. John Bosco is loaded with D1 prospects including Mama, Jaleel Wadood, Malik Dorton, Jacob Tuioti-Mariner, and more, but the one position they needed to replace was running back as leading rusher Darren Walker was lost to graduation. McGrew was not only an adequate replacement, but he ended up being an upgrade.
McGrew and Bosco represent SoCal's best chance to knock off De La Salle in the Open Bowl in the last five years. Here is a look at McGrew and Bosco running wild on Centennial to earn a date with De La Salle on Saturday.
