"Watch Shai McKenzie play, and it doesn't take 20/20 vision to see he is the type of running back who doesn't set foot on the football fields of Western Pennsylvania very often, one whose numbers this season have been rivaled by few in WPIAL history.
McKenzie's coach at Washington High School, Mike Bosnic, doesn't shy away from describing the talent of the kid he has seen time and time again over the past three seasons, and once again didn't hold back his opinion earlier this week.
"He's one of the best running backs in America," Bosnic said of McKenzie, a junior. "He should be one of the top recruits in the country. He's been amazing. He's the best running back I've seen."
This afternoon, the Aliquippa defense will see the best running back they have seen."
