Owen Garrard, Scarborough
The senior running back rushed for five touchdowns in the championship game as the Red Storm won their first Class A title.

...His teammates, however, were always keenly aware of Garrard’s presence. In games it was common to hear them call out his simple nickname, O.G., in a rising crescendo as soon as he burst through a hole or after he had planted an opposing back.

“The guys have always looked up to him because he’s always been, within this group, the best player, but he’s also a good guy,” said Johnson. “He never got a big head. The teammates, they love him, and I think they appreciate that Owen understood it’s a team game, and even thought he might have wanted a few more carries, he never complained, and he did a great job blocking and a great job playing linebacker.”

As a 6-foot, 225-pound running back who could side-step the first tackler and then often bowl over the next, Garrard rushed for 1,204 yards and 24 touchdowns, averaging 8.7 yards per carry. A three-year starter at linebacker, he hit with power, making 76 tackles this season – 10 for loss with two sacks.
