Athlete of the Week: Greene's Kurt Shear

Greene lost over 1,200 yards rushing and 15 touchdowns to graduation last year. If you thought the Trojans’ running game might take a step back, think again.

The Trojans rushed for 226 yards in its first game, and piled up a whopping 380 yards last week. Just like last year, Greene has the top offense in Chenango County, and senior running back Kurt Shear is leading the way.



Shear had 293 yards rushing as a backup last year. Through two games, he also already blown past that total. Shear had 243 yards on 29 carries in a 41-21 win over Lansing last Friday. In two games, he leads the area with 352 yards and five rushing touchdowns, and is benefiting from an experienced offensive line.

“He’s flourishing as ‘the guy’ this year,” said Greene coach Tim Paske. “He won’t tell you, but you can tell he relishes and loves that role. You can tell by his demeanor that he’s enjoying it.”
