Russell Boston runs for 189 yards, 3 TDs

A week before Liberty’s Sept. 27 matchup against Juanita, running back Russell Boston had a special visitor.

Boston had dinner with Jacksonville Jaguars running back Maurice Jones-Drew prior to the team’s game against the Seattle Seahawks.

Jones-Drew, a star at UCLA, led the NFL in rushing in 2011 and is considered one of the league’s top backs.

“He told me to surround yourself with the right people and just go at it 100 percent every day,” Boston said.
