5. Jon Volpe, RB, 1986

As a senior All-American nominee, Volpe rushed for a state-best 1,780 yards on 221 carries (that’s eight yards per carry) and led Amphitheater to a 10-0 regular season. Volpe went on to be a 1,000-yard rusher at Stanford and earn a spot on its All-Century team before making his mark in the CFL where he set the rookie rushing record with more than 1,300 yards and was named rookie of the year. Volpe is shown here playing for Stanford.
