Stats add up to the best for Trotwood-Madison RB Ra’veion Hargrove


You can call him 3K-Ray. Or maybe Shocka. Big-Play Ray also fits.

We’ll call Trotwood-Madison High School senior running back Ra’veion Hargrove the most productive best.

Even better than Tony Cospy, the original Trotwood standout? No comparison.

How about the great Keith Byars, the mountainous pride of Nettie Lee Roth? Nope.

Surely Curtis Enis of wee Mississinawa Valley and Mr. Football fame ranks higher. Ha.

There’s always Javon Ringer, the Chaminade Julienne mini Hulkster. Stop it.

OK, Ryan Brewer, the runaway Troy Train or Gordon Bell for more Trojans lore? Brewer is in the ballpark, not the horn-rimmed Bell.

It’s been a great Rams ride for Hargrove, a 5-foot-7, 165-pound hammer with Superball spring and open-field unpredictability. And we have the stats to prove it. Here’s what we added up according to the Greater Western Ohio Conference site and some additional digital digging:

Career total offense: 7,859 yards. That breaks down to 7,364 yards rushing, 379 yards receiving and 116 yards in kickoff returns.

Career rushing yards: 7,364, which should rank him No. 7 all-time in the state.

Career TDs: 100; tied for ninth all-time in the state.

Career catches: 22.

Career rushes: 740.

Best game: Better to label this a series. From Week 9 through the D-III regional final in the 2015 season – a span of five games – he rushed for 385, 361, 190, 371 and 321 yards. And in the sixth game, a crushing 21-13 state semifinal loss to Toledo Central Catholic, he had 225 yards rushing. That’s a six-game total of

1,853 yards and 24 TDs.

Best season: A tossup. Trotwood went 15-0 and won a D-III state title last weekend in Hargrove’s final season. But for stats, can’t go wrong with the 3,039 yards rushing he had that breakout sophomore season. Hence, 3K-Ray. That also is good for ninth all-time among the state’s single-season rushing leaders.

Honors: Everything, including Ohio’s Mr. Football runner-up as a senior.

Next level? Undecided after de-committing from Bowling Green.

Quote: “It’s a bittersweet moment. I’m still happy we’re 15-0, but I’m going to miss it. I love Ram Nation.”
