“They do a great job of college rugby and the young players are great. Their defenders [Fields] are amazing. They have excellent outdoor skills and excellent security that can control the ball. So it’s very complete. ” The team is well trained. It will not be easy. ”
J.K. gave Fields excellent support. Dobbins scored 1829 yards and 20 touchdowns this season, third and sixth in the country, respectively.
The pair played an important role in transforming Ohio crime into the highest octane in the state, averaging 48.7 points per game, but the combination of Tigers and defenders was equally impressive.
After a relatively slow start to the season, Trevor Lawrence threw 20 touchdown passes in the last six games without being intercepted, while Travis Etienne ran 1,500 yards and 17 points, taking first place in the FBS with 8.24 yards per carry.
