I don't know about 10 times better but I would rather have Varney on my team, because he will only be a junior next year and will have another year to play.

also the fact that Weston seems to get injured at crucial points in a season, ill take gordon varney, but weston has the capabilities of being the best running back in eastern kentucky

Just because he has had 2 injuries....lol...that's a good reason not to pick him...both of those were freak accidents...nothing that he could control...and both came when he was giving 110%

BUT, Weston has been doin it for 2 years now and goin on his 3rd, AND Weston plays some stiffer competition IMO. EKY 2A in't as tough as EKY 1A, but that's just my opinion.

In that case livemaroon i would habve to take Varney because he rushed for over 1700 yards last season. What did Robinson rush for? Varney put Central on his back and pretty well carried them after Anthony Chapman went out with a knee injury. I have heard Varney has close to 4'4 speed from a very reliable source and is powerful and illusive. Varney is my choice.

This is true...and now with Shurtleff gone, Weston will get a lot more carries...so i expect for him to have a lot more yards next season
But Beef with Shurtleff gone now, who is going to take over his position
Ryan Shurtleff maybe?

I'm not sure about EKY 2A being weaker than EKY 1A. I mean Pikeville is the cream of the crop in 1A, then you got teams like Phelps (I think they are 1A), South Floyd (who had an exceptional season), Paintsville, Allen Central, and I'm not sure who all else is considered east Ky. But compare those teams like Belfry, Breathitt, P'burg, and I'll think I'd take 2A over 1A.

But being that that isn't the argument here, yes Robinson is goin on his third year, but Varney is only in his second year of football, ever, if I'm not mistaken. He came from Kimper and they don't have any kind of football progam, compared to Pikeville who has a pretty good middle school program or so I've heard. I think if Varney had been able to play football since he was in 3rd grade or whatever then he would be a better back than most backs around here.

I don't know the kid's life history or anything, so if I'm wrong on this someone please correct me.

i think that the two reason he has more yards then weston is one most of the games he played in he played the whole game weston only played 6 out of 14 games the whole game. and all those games he had 100+ yards in the first half
and two he had to share with robert
i think weston would rush for 2000 in 10 games if he could play the whole game haha

You can't really judge the caliber of the player solely on the yardage they have gained. Unless they played the exact same schedule. The only game I got to see Robinson play in was the P'burg game at the beginning of the season. But I got to see Varney play on more that one occasion. So before I can give an accurate response to this I'll have to go watch Robinson play this season. But I do know that Varney is a good back and if I was a coach I would definately want him on my team. Same thing with Robinson.

i think its bias to base a decison on yards earned...i wouldnt want a back who rushed for 2,000 yrds a season if he was a hot head...i kno that both varney and robinson are great backs with just as great attitudes towards the game..its a tough call to make...ive watched both play and ive witnessed both play through injury and injury. they are tough kids. if i were a coach i would be trying to get both of them on my roster

look at it this way........Your skill doesnt mean a thing if you use it at a level that varney did.....weston took toll against better more skilled opponents....without him no way could pikeville have been 11-3

Other than the playoffs what teams did Pikeville play that were so much harder than the schedule Pike Central played?

Sorry but your facts are wrong. He rushed for 1400.

LOL what are you smoking? Pike Central plays in a district with Prestonsburg and Belfry, and a region with Breathitt Co. and Middlesboro. Don't even say that EKY 1A is tougher then EKY 2A. Considering the last 4 years a team from that region has been in the state finals and 3 of them have won state. I'm not saying that Varney is better, but his region is MUCH better then Weston's. IMO there were three teams in that 2A region better then Pikeville at the end of the year.

Varney was the backbone of the pike central team so he definitely brings more to the team. he has all the heart knows where to take the ball and has great moves. i take varney.
