Wichita (Kan.) Wichita Southeast junior running back Joseph Randle had a big weekend.
Against Wichita West, he went out and scored on touchdown runs of 74 and 13 yards. He then also returned a punt 74 yards for another score.
That along would have been good enough, but Randle also found out that he's starting to become a hot target with the college coaches.

"I found out I've got more offers," Randle said. "My coach told me that Miami offered me orally and will be sending the offer letter on Monday. I also got an offer from Ole Miss and I heard K-State is going to be offering me really soon, too.
"It's really exciting to start to get all this type of attention. It's really flattering, but I can't let it take away from what we're doing on the field. Winning games is the most important thing."
Randle is one of the top 2010 prospects in the Heartland.
As a sophomore, Randle rushed for 1,667 yards, earning honorable mention all-metro honors behind five-star running back Bryce Brown and Logan Dold, who is playing a lot as a true freshman at Kansas State. In his first three games as a junior, he's scored six times, including rushing scores, special team scores and a receiving score.
"I put him up there with some of the best I've seen in my time here in Wichita, and we've had some great ones, no question," his coach, Gary Guzman, said. "The numbers he put up last year were some of the best around here we've seen in a while – as a sophomore. They were incredible.
"He can catch the football. He can throw the football. We can put him in the shotgun and put him in the traditional sets. We can put him out as a return guy. He can basically do it all and has the right attitude about it."
