Week three brought plenty of big games across the state of Georgia, and while the state isn’t as loaded at the running back position as they normally are, there were still quite a bit of standout running back performances from this past weekend.

While many feel Cody BrownCodyBrown6'0" | RBParkview High School | 2021StateGA from Parkview is the state’s best back, Grayson running back Phil MafahPhilMafah6'1" | RBGrayson High School | 2021StateGA, a Clemson commit, proved this weekend that it’s him who should be on top. The big, powerful 6-foot-1 215-pounder is known for running through tackles, but he did much more than that against Collins Hill. Mafah showed off his wheels against the talented Eagles defense, rushing 23 times for 175 yards and 3 touchdowns. This game was supposed to be close, but the Rams rushing attack, led by Mafah, ran through the Collins Hill defense like a knife through butter. Through 3 games so far, Mafah has 48 carries for 471 yards (9.7 ypc) and 8 touchdowns. He’s averaging 157 rushing yards per game, and more importantly, the Rams are 3-0 and look like the best 7A team in the state.
