Roberts The Next 2,000-yard Back?
Last year at this point (five games), Grafton running back Phillip Thaxton had rushed for 676 yards. By the end of the season he’d become the third running back in the Bay Rivers and Peninsula districts to eclipse the 2,000-yard mark in the regular season, ending up with 2,058.
Five games into this season, Smithfield running back Dyrell Roberts, a Virginia Tech commit, already has 926 rushing yards. He and the Packers host Poquoson Friday night.
