Rivals100 number one running back Reggie Bush (6-0, 180, 4.4) from San Diego (Calif.) Helix is back on track and is running like the record breaking running back that first brought him to our attention.
Bush has played banged up this season and still has only missed one game.
If toughness was ever a question regarding Bush it isn’t anymore. Bush has been playing with a fractured wrist and has been playing with cast half-way up his arm.
The last two games Bush has once again been phenomenal. Last Friday’s game Bush had 267 total offensive yards and four touchdowns. He had 160 yards on the ground with the rest coming through the air and on returns.
The amazing thing about this feat is opposing teams scheme to stop Bush and even with a fractured wrist this stellar running back is almost impossible to stop.
Bush comes from a religious household and he has his feet firmly on the ground. There is not one bit of arrogance in this young man. Confident, yes, but not a drop of self-importance is evident in Bush. It has always been about the team with this young man.
Bush is also very goal oriented and he has a plan beyond football. That is why academics always come first this young man.
Whether in the classroom or in athletics, Bush strives to be the best. He has the work ethic that separates the great players from the good.
Though Bush has been banged up and opposing teams aim to stop Bush he still has close to 500 yards on the season and if he stays healthy, he is a cinch to rush for over 1,000 yards.
Bush has committed himself to three visits according to Lamar Griffin, Reggie’s father, and those lucky schools are Stanford, Washington and Notre Dame. Griffin let Rivals100 know that the visits will more than likely take place in January.
The following is from a previous Rivals100 report:
Bush had a colossal junior season that saw him record Conference single season records for rushing yards, TDs and total points. Bush rushed for 2,200 yards, scored 34 TDs and accounted for 204 points. He averaged 36.4 yards per TD run. He also averaged over 12 yards per carry. If that doesn’t impress you let’s try this – Bush plays in an offense that spreads the ball around.
One could only wonder what kind of stats that Bush would chalk up if received the majority of touches. Another thing that is impressive about Reggie stats is the fact he sat out the second half of many games due to blowouts!
He was selected Conference Player of the Year, all-state, all-CIF and all everything you can think of.
