Head coach talks Rapheal Webb
"Rapheal's a winner," said James Thomson. "That's really the best way I can describe him. He's really a complete back. I mean he's got a fast gear to hit the perimeter and he's also strong enough to run you over. His best attributes are his elusiveness, he's very hard to catch, and his balance, he stays on his feet and isn't easy to bring down.
"He was a two year starter for us. This year we made it all the way to the 6A state championship game and he really was the guy who stepped up and carried us there. He rushed for more than 2,000 yards on the season and was All-State, All-County, All-Region. He's also a great individual off the field. What stands out to me the most about Rapheal is his leadership ability."
Coach Thomson said Webb and several classmates including Chris Thompson (Florida) and Keith Kelsey Jr. (Louisville) will be signing at the school at 3:00 P.M. ET on Wednesday. The Gainesville Hurricanes made a long run in the Florida Class 6A playoffs in 2012 but lost at the Citrus Bowl to Miami-Central on December 15th to finish 14-1.
