Evan McCracken can fly. Almost literally. He’s one of the fastest football players in the state of PA this year. Once he sees the hole, if it isn’t plugged immediately he’s gone! Defensively, he’s around the ball almost every play. Last season the incoming senior ran for 1,422 yard with 22 trips to the endzone. He can also get yards after the catch accounting for 438 yards and 6 td’s on 28 catches. Defensively, Evan racked up 80 tackles, 6 for loss and 2 interceptions.

Head Coach Brandon Bailey likes what he has in Evan on both sides of the ball: “Evan is one of the top football players to ever play at Richland. In addition to being an all-state caliber running back, Evan has also starred at linebacker and on special teams. He is one of the fastest players in PA, winning the 60m indoor title at states this past winter“.
