TALLAHASSEE, FLA., (www.franchisesportsonline.net– Kelvin Dean Jr. has been tearing it up this season. In the first month, the senior running back put up a 5A District 2 high of 613 yards on 67 carries and eight touchdowns. That is an average of 153 yards per game along with two touchdowns in each.

In every game he’s played, the Temple commit has shown why defenses game plan around him. In his first game of the season, Dean Jr. only put up 40 rushing yards on 11 carries and averaged 3.6 yards per carry. Against Leon, he was an immovable object; he put up 173 yards on 13 carries and also had a touchdown. This was only through two and a half quarters due to an injury that kept him out for the rest of the game.

The next week he was back on the field against Chiles where he put up 115-yards on 17 carries and another touchdown. Dean Jr. hit it out of the park against Gadsen County. He rushed for 285 yards on 26 carries. On those carries, six of them were touchdowns. With numbers like these, Dean Jr. will be close to his career high from last season of 1,836 rushing yards.

The season is still young. Dean Jr. hopes that his numbers lead to more as Rickards this season is 1-4. The Temple commit looks to take the momentum of last week’s phenomenal performance to Gene Cox this Friday night as Rickards takes on Lincoln.
