PRESEASON: Top 10 running backs in the SGV …

WestCo’s loaded backfield could be tops in the area.

Tyler Hockenhull had a big impact after transferring to West Covina from Muir.


1. Aaron Harris, Baldwin Park – Arguably the Valley’s most prized recruit, Harris could lead BP back to prominence this season.

2. Daniel Bernal, Wilson – Part of a loaded set of skill players for the Wildcats.

3. Dominique Gaisie, Bishop Amat – Has to stay healthy and be the undisputed focal point of Amat’s offense.

4. William Wallace, West Covina – Speaking of staying healthy … if Wallace does, LOOKOUT!

5. Rene Small, Rowland – Was hyped by Raider insiders last year, but took a backseat to Mark Burgos.

6. Tyler Hockenhull, West Covina – Will get his share of the carries.

7. Johnny Crespo, Charter Oak – Pint-sized Amat transfer will get a heavy load this year.

8. Zack Butler, Glendora – Has a hard act (Ben Rodriguez) to follow.

9. Ira Thomas, Los Altos – Gano warns this 200-pounder “can play.”

10. Will Davis, Northview – Would be the featured back if big league dreams don’t get in the way.
