Sherburne-Earlville senior Greg DuVall has come back bigger, stronger, and probably faster in 2010. Known around Chenango County the past several years as one of the premier wrestlers, DuVall is finding more and more success each week on the gridiron, and leads the Marauders in rushing as S-E seeks its first winning record in six seasons.
DuVall had his best game as a varsity player last Friday in a 42-7 victory over Little Falls. He ran for 128 yards and two touchdowns, and his tough, hard-nosed running moved the chains drive after drive. DuVall also had a key first-down pass reception in the first half to set up a touchdown.
“Wrestling has always been his first sport, and he definitely worked hard in the weight room in the offseason,” said S-E coach Mike Jasper. “I’m definitely no wrestling aficionado, but I think Greg was frustrated with losing weight. He lifted heavy with his legs in the offseason, and he’s put on at least 15 to 20 pounds of muscle. You can see the strength when he runs, and the hard work has paid off. He’s a kid that can run between the tackles and is durable.”
