Prep Redzone looks at some top returning running backs in the Big Central Conference. We have a mix of 2022 and 2023 prospects on our watch list.

It’s about the running backs who put up the numbers.

Robinson carried the football 74 times for 559 yards and six touchdowns in seven games last season. Robinson posted two games of 100-plus yards last season against Linden (146) and Colonia (133).

Bryce Cobb Bryce Cobb 6'2" | RB Bound Brook | 2022 State NJ |6-1|210|Bound Brook
