  • Caught one that that was missed that deserves the recognition. Senior RB Drew Loberg of Class D-2 State Qualifier Randolph. Loberg broke the 1,000 yard mark last week in a 68-28 win over State Qualifier Emerson-Hubbard. Loberg has 1,007 yards rushing in only seven games, missing one complete game due to injury and only on 120 carries total for the year as Loberg is rarely allowed to play offense in the second half. In that game he had 161 yards rushing and 3 TD's (56,19,46) on 15 carries. Had 3 receptions for 52 yds and a TD(45 yds), had 3 punt returns for 81 yards and a TD(56 yds)and had 2 kickoff returns for 92 yards and a TD(74 yds). 6 total TD's, 2 PAT'S(1 rushing, 1 receiving) and 386 All-Purpose yards.

  • I apologize Mr. Loberg. It is difficult to find Randolph stats until a few days after the game. Congratulations on have, not one, but TWO sons who were multiple 1000 Yard Rushers!

    Dylan ends up with 5,115 career yards and Drew is at 3,754 right now.

    Not too many Dads can say they have sons that rushed for 9000 yards!

    Were you a 1000 yard rusher sir?

  • No need to apologize, I understand your dilemma and the difficulty in acquiring the information you need from coaches. Was just trying to get you the info. It'd be nice if some of them would do more promoting of their players and team than they do. Would be nice to help get info. out to colleges also by promoting the ones that want to move onto the next level and have the ability to do so. Would only benefit their overall program. Thank you for the kind words regarding my boys, sure appreciate it! I'm very proud of all their athletic and academic high school accomplishments. They both work extremely hard during every sporting season, the off season and in school. Looking like a possible second Valedictorian. They definitely give 110% effort in games and practice and that's why they've had success. I wish I could say I was, but I wasn't (1,000 yd. rusher). Played out of position as a junior to help the team out, was a 160 lb guard/linebacker. Then stayed there as a 170 lb. senior for the same reason, as my younger brother emerged as a pretty good running back in his own right. Had the speed, but the coach just needed me to stay there for the betterment of the team. Thanks again for all you do in promoting high school football! I have no doubt that it is very time consuming!! Drew's latest exploits in a 28-14 win over Osmond were almost as good as the week before.
