It's senior running back Charlie Geraets, who has eclipsed 1000 yards rushing for a second consecutive year. 43-year Brainerd coach Ron Stolski has been around many talented backs, and no doubt that Geraets ranks with the best of 'em.

Brainerd is 5-2 entering Wednesday night's home game vs. Sartell. With a win, they will clinch the top seed in the section 8, 5A playoffs.
