Keenan Batsell


School: Monroe City


Year: Senior


Position: Fullback


Height: 5-10


Weight: 190


The stats: Ran for 1,468 yards and 16 touchdowns on 198 carries.


Why watch: The fullback position is what makes a Wing-T offense so successful, and Batsell was why the Panthers’ offense hummed last season in his first year as the starter.


Batsell averaged 122 yards per game and 7.4 yards per carry last season. He did all that while sharing carries with running back Zach Osborn, who also ran for more than 1,000 yards. Batsell becomes the focal point with Osborn’s gradutiaon.
