In his 36 seasons as head coach, Larry Campbell has seen a lot of great players come through his Lincoln County program. One of them is playing for the team right now, his name is AG Middlebrooks
Last week, Middlebrooks ran wild over Aquinas, running for 236 yards on just 8 carries. Not to mention another 86 yards receiving and three touchdowns total. The tailback's talent may just come in his family. His uncle is former NFL player Garrison Hearst but Middlebrooks says he has own style of running.
"I mean, people can maybe compare me to certain people or go out there and say he runs like this or runs like that but I just go out there and have fun. That's what it's all about" said AG Middlebrooks
While coach Campbell has plenty of good players on his team, it's fun having a running back like Middlebrooks in the backfield.
"Well, we love to have him because he is a threat in the open field." added coach Larry Campbell " He's got great speed. But I bet he'll be the one to tell you himself that he has to credit the offensive line for a lot of that and compliment the other backs in the backfield."
The scariest thing about Middlebrooks, he's only a junior! But for his outstanding 322 total yard performance last week, AG Middlebrooks is our Operation Football Live player of the week.
