BRAD Hurley/TIMES NEWS Deonte St. Hill of Jim Thorpe rushed for 219 yardson20 carries and scored three touchdowns in the Olympians win over Panther Valley.

Good running backs have all types of attributes that make them dynamic at that respective position.

Some are fast, some are quick, and some are strong.

To all the girls on the Pleasant Valley field hockey team, their teammate Johnny Schmid is just one of the "guys."

"It's his first year on our team," says PV coach Jessica Frantz, "and he has helped us have a successful season so far without being an issue whatsoever."

"My real love is playing ice hockey," says Schmid, who is the first boy to play for the Bears' girls' team since 2006, "so I look at field hockey as a great alternative when I'm not on skates."
