#1 RUNNING BACK
A.J. DILLON – BOSTON COLLEGE EAGLES
The Boston College Eagles Super-Star Running Back A.J. Dillon (#2) Helped The Eagles To Break A School Record With an Amazing 691-Yards of Total Offense. They Recorded an Incredible 496-Yards Rushing and Averaged Another Incredible 9.2-Yards Per Play.
Boston College (5-4, 3-3, ACC) Set The 691-Yard School Offensive Record as They Rushed For 496-Yards and The 496-Yards Rushing, by The Eagles Was The Most Rushing Yardage That The Syracuse Orangemen Have Ever Allowed In Their School History. It Was Just 22-Yards off of The Eagles School Record That Was Set 46-Years Ago Against U-Mass.
In The 58-27 Victory Over The Syracuse Orangemen, Dillon (6-0, 250, 4.41, 39, 4.29, 128, 20 Reps, 10.9 100-Meters) Also Averaged 6.9-Yards Per Touch as He Recorded 35 Rushing Attempts For His Incredible 242-Yards Rushing and 3 Touchdowns. Teammate and Sophomore CO-MVP Running Back David Bailey (6-1, 240, 4.52) Also Recorded a Career-High 172-Yards Rushing, and 2 Touchdowns on 16 Carries, As The Two CO-MVP Bruising Running Backs Had Their Own Way on The Football Field.
Before The Game, Dillon Was Ranked Fourth in The Country With 1,044-Yards In Rushing Yards and Rushing Yards Per Game (130.5) for a Boston College Offense That was averaging 255.6-Yards Per Game. Now, Dillon Has 1,286-Yards Rushing and 13 Touchdowns, After His First Nine Games in 2019.
Dillon is an Unbelievable Running Back Freak. He Weighs 250-Pounds and He Has Recorded a 39-Inch Vertical Jump and an Incredible 4.29 in The Pro-Shuttle and That is Not All, because His Strength is Also Unbelievable.
In High School, Dillon Was a Really Great Running Back For Lawrence Academy in Massachusetts. He Was Injured For Part of His Senior Season, but as a Junior, he Rushed for 1,887-Yards and 26 Touchdowns and Averaged 10.9-Yards Per Carry. In That Junior Season, Dillon Also Led Lawrence Academy to The 2015 ISL and Wayne Sanborn State Championships.
Dillon Weighed Several Scholarship Opportunities Including Michigan, Florida State, Notre Dame, Virginia, Wisconsin, and Of Course Boston College, Before Deciding on The Boston College Eagles.
If You Consider The Outstanding Measurements That A.J. Dillon Recorded in 2016 in High School, You Will Understand Why With His Physical, Muscle-Bound Stature and Freakish Athletic Traits, There Were Observers and Scouts Who Believed in His Ability To Become a Great Linebacker in College.
Dillon Was Invited To Two National Super Combines in High School and He Won Both Combines With THE BEST #1 SPARQ RATING, but There Was Also a Huge Discrimination With His Forty Timings With a 4.62 and a 4.56 Clocking. Dillon Also Had Some Incredible Strength Measurables With a 505-Pound Dead-lift, a 585-Pound-Squat, and a 375-Pound Bench Press.
THE MEARS RATING SYSTEM
When I Was With THE DALLAS COWBOYS in 1075-76, We Had a Player Rating System That We Used in 1976 For The 1977 NFL Draft and That Rating System Was Used To-Conclude That Tony Dorsett Was Our #1 Player in 1976 For The 1977 NFL Draft. Then When I Left The Cowboys in 1976, I Founded a Similar Player Rating System, That Was Based on All of The Measurables of The Player and I Called it: THE MEARS RATING SYSTEM or THE MEARS RATING. I Have Tweaked My MEARS RATING SYSTEM Several Times, Giving Higher or Lower Value Ratings For Different Positions.
Although I developed my Rating System, when I left The Cowboys, I did not Start using The Rating System until 2001, when NIKE SPORTS Developed a similar Rating System and called it the SPARQ RATING SYSTEM. I then decided to bring back my Rating System and I called it The MAX EMFINGER ASSET RATING SYSTEM or MEARS RATING.
ASSET Stands For Agility, Strength, Stamina, Explosiveness, and Technique. These are the Essential Tools for a Superior Athletic Performance in any Competitive Sport or Event. This New MEARS RATING SYSTEM or a Similar Rating System, Identifies Overall Athletic Ability, and it can be used by Top College and Pro Coaches around the country as a Great Initial Indicator of The Great Athletic Potential on the Football Field.
THE MEARS RATING SYSTEM, or a Similar Type Rating System, is Also Very Important for The NFL Scouts, and the NFL Scouting Combine is The First Time That Really “Accurate Measurables” are Recorded on These Future NFL Players Before Their NFL Draft. It is Very Easy To say That Someone Can Run a 4.4 or a 4.3 Forty, but before an Accurate Hand-Held Timing by a Professional Talent Scout or Either by a Slower, but Accurate Laser Timing is Done, Most Forty Times Are Less Than Accurate.
Most High School and College Football Players Do Not Even Know What Their Measurables Are and You Would Think That They Would Know, But They Do Not. Many Times, a High School Football Player or a College Football Player Will List what he thinks is His Best Forty-Yard Dash Time as a 4.8 and Then Twenty Minutes Later He Will-Run a 4.6 Forty or better.

Although THE SPARQ RATING SYSTEM Became Popular, It Still Had Some Major Flaws, Because THE SPARQ RATING SYSTEM Was Not Originally Based on a Position By The Player, But on His Weight. If The Rating System is not Based on The Position of the Player, then how are you going to Decide who The Best Player is at That Position or Any Position? If THE RATING SYSTEM is based on the Player Position, Then You Will Know Exactly How He Relates To Other Players at His Position.
So, If You Only Have One Draft Choice or One Scholarship left, THE MEARS RATING SYSTEM Will Give You The Highest Rated Players Regardless Their Position. To-Get This MEARS RATING, You Will Get More Player Information, Including Height, Weight, Forty, Vertical Jump, Pro-Shuttle, Standing Broad Jump, and 185-Pound Bench Press Reps for High School Football Players and 225-Pound Bench Press Reps for College Football Players are put into The Formula and all of this is Based upon The Standard for His Position.
The Seemingly Accurate Forty Timing For Dillon by The NFL Scouts is a 4.43 Forty, but After Watching His Boston College Freshman Game Film Against The Louisville Cardinals, I Believe That Dillon Might be Even Faster Than a 4.42. In Fact, After Watching This Highlight Game Film Against The Syracuse Orangemen, I Think That A.J. Dillon Was The Fastest Player on The Field in Both The Louisville Cardinals Game in 2017 and Also The Syracuse Orangemen Game, as a Freshman in 2017 and After Evaluating Him in These Two Game Films, I Have Given Him a 4.42 in The Forty.
Also In The 2017 Louisville Cardinals Game, There Was an Unbelievable Play That Was One of The Most Unusual Plays That I Have Ever Seen, by a Running Back. On This Play, in The Seventh Game of The Season, Freshman Dillon Got His First Start and he Got The Hand-Off, went into The Line, and Then A Couple Seconds Later, He Came-Out of a Crowded Cluster of Cardinal Defenders and Headed Down The Left Sideline, but There Was a Problem.
The Problem Was That There Was a Cardinal Defender Hanging On-To Him. “All That I Can Remember is That I Wanted to get Him Off Of-Me,” Dillon Said of The Louisville Defender And He Literally Threw The Louisville Defender To The Ground on His Way To a 75-Yard Touchdown Run. “And I Also Wanted To-Get Around That Corner.”
If You Watch This Video, You Will See The True Freshman Running Back A.J. Dillon in his First Boston College Career Start in 2017, Looking Like a Senior All-American, and a Man Among Boys. Dillon Reminds Me of My Good Friend and The Former LSU Tigers Running Back Leonard Fournette (6-0, 245, 4.51), Who Was a 245-Pound Running Back With Immense Terror, as He Tossed Defenders Aside Like Little Rag Dolls on His Way To-Scoring a Touchdown on a Long Touchdown Run.
Dillon is a Chiseled Football Player with 8 Per-Cent Body Fat. He Once Set a New England High School Record for The 100-Meter Dash, but The Amazing Thing About This Feat Was That He Never Trained For it, But He Just Thought “What The Heck”, Let Me See how fast I can run it.
Dillon Did Not Start as a True Freshman in 2017 Until The Middle of October, but He Still Rushed For 1,589-Yards and 14 Touchdowns and He Received The ACC Rookie of The Year Award and Also The ACC Offensive Rookie of The Year Award. He Also Was The First The Boston College Player To-Receive Either Award. His 1,589-Yards Rushing Was Seventh in The Country and Second in The Country For a Freshman. Dillon Was Also Awarded The 79th Annual George “Bulger” Lowe Award as The New England Heisman Trophy Award” and One of America’s Oldest College Football Awards.
Dillon Was Also Awarded as The Football Writers of America (FWAA) Freshman All-American and The ESPN Freshman All-American Team and He Was The First Boston College Player To-Make it Since Linebacker Luke Kuechly in 2009. Dillon Was Also Tied For The Most ACC Votes With Former Heisman Trophy Winner, Lamar Jackson En Route to The First Team All-ACC Honors.
In 2018, as a Sophomore, Dillon Was Selected Again To The All-ACC First Team And He Rushed For 1,108-Yards and 10 Touchdowns. He Also Was The First Boston College Eagles Player in History To-Rush For Over 1,000-Yards In Each of his First Two Football seasons.
Also in 2018 and 2019, Dillon Was Selected as The ACC Pre-Season Player of The Year, The 2018 Pre-Season All-American Team, by The Associated Press, Sports Illustrated, Phil Steele, Athlon Sports, and Lindy Sports, and Was Also Selected To The Doak Walker Watch List, The Maxwell Award Watch List, and The Walter Camp Football Foundation “50 Players To Watch” List Entering Both The 2018 and 2019 Football Seasons.
Without a Doubt, A.J. Dillon Was The Clear-Cut Selection as Was Awarded The ACC Running Back Offensive Player of The Week, For His Game Against The Orangemen. The Boston College Super-Star Running Back Averaged 6.9-Yards Per Touch, Which Ties His Best For The 2019 Season. A.J. Dillon is Also The Grandson of Former Notre Dame Fighting Irish Wide Receiver Tom Gatewood And The College Football Hall of Fame Inductee.
#2 ALL-PURPOSE RUNNING BACK
TRAVIS ETIENNE – CLEMSON TIGERS
If There Was Ever Another Running Back Performance That Might Have Rivaled A.J. Dillon or Chuba Hubbard, It Would Have Been The Performance of Travis Etienne (#9) of The Clemson Tigers, As He Rushed For 212-Yards and 2 Touchdowns on Only 9 Carries and Caught 1 Pass For Another 23-Yards, Giving Him 235-Yards and 2 Touchdowns of All-Purpose Yardage in The Clemson Tigers 59-14 Victory Over The Wofford Terriers. Also, Etienne Did Not Carry The Football, but One Time in The Second Half of The Game.
Etienne Was Held To Only 17-Yards on His First Four Carries on Saturday Against The Wofford Terriers, but Then He Exploded For an Amazing 190-Yards On His Next Four Carries in Setting The Clemson Tigers First-Half School Rushing Record For The Jennings, Louisiana Junior Running Back.
Etienne Finished The First Half With a Career-High 207-Yards on Only 8 Carries With A 25.9-Yards Per Carry Average as The Tigers Built-Up a 42-0 Lead Before Halftime on The FCS Wofford Terriers at Memorial Stadium.
Etienne Also Scored on Touchdown Runs of 47-Yards and 86-Yards, Giving Him 48 Career Touchdowns and Breaking The Previous Clemson Tigers First-Half School Rushing Record, and Etienne Also Broke The Clemson Tigers Previous Career Rushing Touchdown Record Held by James Davis.
Travis Etienne is The Reigning Running Back Freak of The Atlantic Coast Conference, Along With A.J. Dillon, and Etienne Helped The Clemson Tigers, To-Put The Game Away Extremely Early With Unbelievable Touchdown Runs of 47-Yards and 86-Yards.
On His 47-Yard Touchdown Run, Etienne Just Exploded Straight To The Line of Scrimmage and Then Raced “Untouched” Straight Down The Field 47-Yards To The End-Zone.
I Also Went-Back and Evaluated His Freshman Highlight Film in The 2017 Louisville Game Highlight Film and on One of His Plays, in That Game, Etienne Made One of The Most Sensational Running Back Plays That I Have Ever Seen in My Many Years of Evaluating Football Talent. On This Particular Play, Etienne Took a Lateral To-The-Right and Started Running and Going in That Direction, but Then He Completely Changed Directions and Was Heading Back To The Left. Then He Changed Directions Again and Was Headed Back To The Right Sideline.
Each Time That He Changed Directions, He Would “Juke” a Louisville Defender or Two and Then Head-Back To The Other Direction. Then, on His Last Direction-Change To The Left, He Saw an Opening and Streaked Down-The Left Sideline To The End-Zone.
In This Game, The Clemson Tigers, Improved Their FCS Game Program Record To a 34-0 Record and It Also Was The Clemson Tigers, Sixth Straight Victory Over The Wofford Terriers (5-3), Which Fell to a 1-21 Record Against FBS Game Football Programs.
Travis Etienne (5-10, 210, 4.33, 39, 4.13, 128, At Least 20 Reps) Has Tremendous World-Class Speed With Uncanny Quickness, Acceleration, and Explosiveness With an Unparalleled Potential To-Score A Touchdown on Every Single Time That He Touches The Football!
The Thing That is Really Confusing and Highly Controversial About The Speed Measurables of Travis Etienne is Their Accuracy. One NFL Report Lists His Best Forty Time as a 4.42 and another NFL Source Lists His Best Forty as a 4.47. If You Had Ever Evaluated Etienne on a Highlight Film or If You Ever Ran Track or Played Football, You Would Actually Know That Etienne Is The Fastest Player on The Football Field in Every Single Game That He Plays-In!
Initially, I Gave CO-MVP Etienne a 4.38 Timing in The Forty, a 38-Inch Vertical Jump, a 4.18 in The Pro-Shuttle, and a 128-Inch Standing Broad Jump; which are all Based on Speed and Athletic Ability.
On April 10, 2016, The Opening Regional Combine Tour For Really High-Profile Football Recruits Made a Stop in New Orleans, Only About Three Hours From His Home, in Jennings, and so Etienne Decided To-Take-Part In The Super Combine and As Soon As He Arrived in New Orleans, He Lined-Up To-Run A 40-Yard Dash and He Recorded a Great 4.38-Forty.
By Evaluating Etienne on His Highlight Film, and Considering His 4.38, Coming-Out of High School, I Immediately Updated His Best Forty Time To a 4.33 Off Of His Highlight Film. This Forty Instantly Shifted Etienne From a Small-Town Phenom To The Player That Every College in America Wanted!
The Actual Difference Between Real Speed and Football Speed Might Be Two Different Speeds and That is Why Some of The Fastest Athletes in The Country Do Not Make Great Players on The Gridiron, but in Some Cases, and Especially in The Case of Etienne, They Have Become Exceptional Football Players. One Example Would Be Olympic Gold Medalist and World-Class Sprinter Bob Hayes Who Might Have Run The Fastest Forty Ever Run.
When a Player, Like Travis Etienne, Combines The Great Speed and The Great Athletic Ability, a Truly Gifted and Exceptional Football Playmaker is Born.
Etienne Just Became The First Player In Clemson Tigers School History To Have Three 200-Yard Rushing Games in a Career and He Continued That With His Recent Game and He Also Has Recorded Four Consecutive 100-Yard Games and has totaled 635-Yards on 55 carries during Those Four Games and He Also Averaged an Incredible 11.5-Yards Per Carry.
The 212-Yards on Saturday Gave Etienne His Season Total of 1,214-Yards Rushing, Giving Him His Second Consecutive 1,000-Yard Rushing Season and Equaling The Former Clemson Tiger Running Back Terrence Flagler For The Least Amount of Games With Nine To-Reach The 1,000-Yards. Etienne is Now Only Three Games Shy of The Wayne Gallman Clemson Tigers School Record of 17 100-Yard Rushing Games.
The Clemson Tigers Super Sophomore Quarterback Trevor Lawrence Also Had Another Great Game as He Completed 12 of 16 Passes For 218-Yards and 3 Touchdowns and Had 4 Rushes for Another 33-Yards and Another Touchdown, Giving Him 251-Yards and 4 Touchdowns in The Clemson Tigers Victory. The Great Game by Trevor Lawrence (6-6, 220, 4.66, 32, 4.33) Gave Him a Tremendous 196.6 Quarterback Rating.
#3 ALL-PURPOSE RUNNING BACK
KYLIN HILL – THE MISSISSIPPI STATE BULLDOGS
The Mississippi State Bulldogs Super All-Purpose Running Back Kylin Hill (#8) Was Incredible in The Game Against The Arkansas Razorbacks as he Helped The Mississippi State Bulldogs To Their 54-24 Victory.

Earlier in The Week, Super-Star Running Back Kylin Hill (5-11, 215, 4.33, 38, 4.13, 128, 20) Who is The Leading Rusher in The SEC Conference Had Been Challenged by Mississippi State Bulldogs Head Coach Joe Moorhead To-Do More Rushing in The Games.

In This Game, Hill, From Columbus, Mississippi, Rushed For a Career-High 234-Yards on 21 Carries and Three Touchdowns and He Also Caught 1 Pass for Another Yard, Giving Him 235-Yards of All-Purpose Yards and 3 Touchdowns. What Was Sensational For His 235-Yards Was That Hill Had 198-Yards in The First Half, along With His Three Touchdowns.
“Coach Had Been Pushing Me,” Hill said. “My Last Couple Games Was Not Me! I was doing too much Dancing in the Backfield. I can do it, but that’s not my kind of style. I had to get back to being More Aggressive.”
Hill Started All 11 Games That He Played-In In 2018 As a Sophomore, but a Lower-Body Injury During The Second Half of the Season Sidelined him for Home Games Against The Texas A&M Aggies and The Arkansas Razorbacks. In All of Those Games, Hill Has Flashed Some Great All-America Ability.
As a Sophomore, Hill had Three 100-Yard Games and in 2019, Hill Has Four 100-Yard Games and his Current 234-Yard Game. As a Sophomore, Hill Rushed For 734-Yards and Averaged 6.3-Yards Per Rush, which Ranked Him Sixth in The SEC.

“Everything is Dedicated To My Mom and My Little Boy, Mason” Murphy said. “They Are My Reason Why I Am Doing Everything That I Do Today.”
“If You Had Ever Met Marcus’ Mom, She Was a Wonderful and Tremendous Person,” Moorhead said. “For Marcus Murphy To Get a Pick-Six in His First College Start and play Such a Great Game, I’m Sure That She Is Looking Down on Him and Smiling Right Now.”
