    Jbias Dawson

    Dawson is ranked 12th in the state among 2A schools and is averaging 9.5 yards per carry and around 100 yards per game. Bullish and not afraid of contact, a large percentage of the junior running back’s yards come after breaking at least one tackle. He has nine rushing touchdowns so far this season and has also operated often as a pass-catcher out of the screen. He has turned eight catches into 124 yards and three touchdowns. Also acting as a kick returner, he has three touchdowns directly from returns this season.
