1130thefan.com headed to Northview High School on Tuesday to present last week’s Ivy Tech Community College Wabash Valley Athlete of the Week Award to Northview running back Jacob Dean. Dean had an outstanding game running the ball for the Knights in their 42-21 win over West Vigo.
Dean along with Jacob Little, Ben Girton, and Kelly Hawkins followed their blockers to score six rushing touchdowns and like any running back Dean knows a lot of the credit goes to the five guys up front, "Well it really starts with them. As long as they can get a good push, it makes it easy for us running backs."
The Knights are now 6-2 on the season and share first place in the Western Indiana Conference (WIC) with Brown County (who the Knights travel to this Friday). "Last Year we didn't really do that good but years before that we usually won, so we really want to bring it back to Northview and we have a share in it now but we want it out right” said Dean.
The Knight’s rusher is just a sophomore and is getting a lot of game experience early in his career. Dean has a very bright future in the Northview backfield.
