Stats & Evals
Damyrion Phillips (23) RB, Paetow
Phillips has been surprisingly great this season for Paetow rushing for 1,170 yards and 18 touchdown, but surprisingly does not have any offers yet.

Payne has the jets, shows he can run run between the tackles, also shows the patiences and lateral speed to turn what mighty look lire a loss of yards into six points, Last game Payne did just that.
