Malary wins Mount Hood rushing title
Barlow junior running back Jobi Malary was the Bruins' biggest breakout threat this past football season, mixing an ability to bulldoze through the middle to move the chains with his skill at juking a linebacker and taking the ball the distance.
He showcased that skillset in the Bruins' playoff showdown with No. 6-ranked Tigard by breaking loose for a 33-yard touchdown run down the center of the field to put Barlow on top on the team's third play from scrimmage.
Malary finished the regular season by winning the Mount Hood Conference rushing title, piling up 1,255 yards and 17 touchdowns. He finished nearly 500 yards ahead of the next back on the list.
Barlow senior Triston Stauffer also made a splash by being one of three players named all-league on both sides of the ball after being voted first team on the offensive and defensive line. Oregon City junior Zakayas Dennis-Lee was all-league at running back and linebacker, while Oregon City senior Teron Bradford earned all-league honors at three positions — wide receiver, cornerback and kick returner.
