No matter what happens during the Ellet Orangemen's season this year, head coach Joe Yost knows he has a quality leader in senior Devin Richardson. What Yost likes the most about Richardson is how hard the young man works.
``He's such a great guy, he has a great personality, he's always smiling and he just loves playing football,'' Yost said of the running back and middle linebacker. ``When he's running the ball in practice, he always runs 20 yards past the line of scrimmage. The positions he's playing means he's the heart and soul of our team and we're asking a lot of him. The kids respect him, the coaches respect him and opponents respect him. That's saying a lot.''
Ellet opens the season Friday at Springfield.
