Just by looking at his junior season stats it's easy to see why running back Ty Isaac (Joliet, Ill./Joliet Catholic) is so heavily sought after. Of his team's 93 total touchdowns, Isaac accounted for 51. He had 42 rushing touchdowns with a little more than 2,600 yards, seven receiving scores and two return touchdowns.

He has proved he can be a versatile back in any offense. He obviously has been a key to his current team's success, which is why his coach, Dan Sharp, believes he will be successful in the future.

"Anytime he touches the ball, everybody is on edge, because it could be a Gayle Sayers moment. Every time Sayers touched the ball, he could go, and Ty has that ability," Sharp said. "[Isaac would fit] in any kind of pro-style offense. He's the type of back who can get tough yards, durable, and he's not fun to tackle for safeties and corners."
