  • This team looks a little one sided for the western part of the state. This team clearly missed on Jr. RB Dylan Loberg of Randolph who finished with 1,607 yds. rushing. Loberg rarely played in the second half of games due to his coaches not padding his stats as many players on here clearly were. Loberg had 162 carries in ten games, that's only 16 carries per game and a 10 yd per carry average. Skinner of Hemingford had 53 carries in one game, that's a third of Loberg's carries for the season in one game. That's having your stats padded. If Loberg would have EVER gotten over 30 carries in a game, he would have rushed for over 400 yds. a game. In one game this year he had 8 total carries for the game and rushed for 226 yds. Take that times 7 to match Skinners carries in one game and Loberg would have rushed for over a 1,000 yds. in one game. He's the total package of size, power, strength, elusiveness and speed that no back in D-1 can match. Against Exeter-Milligan, the best defense in D-1, Loberg rushed for 203 yds. on just 16 carries. Skinner of Hemingford went for 144 yds on 35 carries against that same Exeter-Milligan defense. Morrill of Creighton went for 81 yds. on 24 carries vs Exeter-Milligan. Double Loberg's carries and he goes for over 300 yds. easily against Exeter-Milligan.

  • You are probably correct. I love the way Loberg played, but there's one problem...I couldn't find any stats on him anywhere. Both the World-Herald and Journal Star have the luxury of coaches sending then all-state ballot sheets. Same with Huskerland Prep Report. I do not enjoy that luxury. I do my all-state team with a ton of research but stats can help make the difference of a young man making the team or not making it.

    The only reason I do these teams is to give the kids more publicity. That is my sole purpose of existing in my retirement years....to promote high school sports and give back to the very thing that has brought so much joy and happiness to me throughout my life.

    I know most of the coaches in the state but have never met Mark Lech. Maybe someday he will send me stats not only for this but my 1000 Yard Club where there was an error for Dylan's total.

    I appreciate you input.

  • Thank You Thousand Yard Guy for the response back and correcting the rushing yards for Dylan Loberg. Don't get me wrong, I truly enjoy and appreciate all the work you do to bring us the 1,000 Yd. Club and I apologize in spite of the Randolph coach for them not sending you any stats. They truly do their players and their program an injustice by not promoting either either one. Dylan hopes to play college football after high school, but recognition and exposure will be lacking because of their failure to help one of their own players and program out. That is very sad! If he would promote his players, it would also make himself and his program look good. Thank you for donating your time to recognize and promote all the Nebraska high school football players that are very deserving of recognition. I hope to do the same sort of thing when and if I ever get to retirement. I know the kids sure enjoy the publicity. Another thing no one will ever know because of the coach not promoting one of his kids, is that Dylan Loberg will fall 130 yards shy of becoming just the fourth Nebraska high school football player to rush for 1,000 yds in each of his four years, as long as he stays healthy next year. Loberg finished with 870 yds. as a freshman and he only carried the ball over 20 times in one game that season and missed the last game of the season due to a concussion. Again thank you for all you do and keep doing what you do and enjoying your retirement!
