is a running back for Mt. Zion Jonesboro High School near Atlanta
that does a little bit of everything for his Bulldog team. Ward is a pro-style
running back in that he is adept at catching the ball out of the backfield and
picking up pass rushers as a blocker.
He has very good open field moves, and he shows the whole package in the first
play of this clip. Ward takes a swing pass and sets up a defender near the
sideline. Ward fakes him out so completely that he not only makes the guy miss,
he makes the guy fall down. A true ankle breaker.
See him in action in this presentation from ScoutTV:
