Balance, vision & power project better to the next level than blazing speed


Maybe that's why the coaches don't rate Coleton Beck that high. Peoples may not be blazing fast but he does the other things well that make a RB successful. In his video, when he has one guy to beat, he knows how to get the right angle on him to beat him and go the distance. He shows great balance when he's hit and keeps his feet under him to get the extra yardage.

Not sure about the level of competition in Galax/Timesland area but you can see the complete running back skills in the video. He's not a one-trick-pony. There are also plays of him on defense where he lays the wood to the ball-carrier so I have no doubt he's a good blocker. At 5'-9", 215, he's got a low center of gravity and can get leverage.
