Antwuan Battle


School: Monroe City


Year: Senior


Position: Running back/safety


Height: 5-5


Weight: 170


The stats: Ran for 188 yards and a touchdown on 26 carries. Recorded 29 tackles and had a fumble recovery.


Why watch: A crowded backfield meant Battle saw limited carries on offense. But with graduations, Battle should be in the mix to get a bulk of the carries this season.


He showed promise last season by averaging 7.2 yards per carry, and his lone catch on the season came in a crucial point late in the game against Helias Catholic.
