Mid Valley Spotlight: San Dimas’ Chris Rufus

San Dimas' Chris Rufus

San Dimas’ Chris Rufus

Chris Rufus, San Dimas, RB/DB, 6-0, 170, Senior

2013 Stats: Rushing: 31-263 yards, 8.48 avg, 5 TD. Receiving: 9-288 yards, 32 yrds per catch, 3 TD.

If he gets in the open field, it’s over. Line up for the extra point. As you can tell by his 32 yards per catch last year, Rufus is as explosive as they come. He’s listed as a running back but make no mistake you’ll also see him line up wide, in the slot and anywhere else offensive guru Bill Zernickow decides to use him. Rufus is the type of player that can change the complexion of a game in an instant. A real homerun hitter if you will. An 80 yard catch for a touchdown and a 65 yard interception return for a score on the next possession and just like that you’re down 14-0. Rufus raised some eyebrows last year. This year you might see DCs design their entire schemes around stopping him. Rufus will have them raising the proverbial roof in San Dimas this year.
