Bismarck High has a history of great running backs.
This year a new Demon tries to become the difference maker
Jon Schaeffer has more on the BHS backfield.
"In the first three weeks of the season-- Noah Dubord has carried the load for the Demons-- rushing for over 350 yards on 48 carries.
But this week he'll give way to Senior Ricky Galindo who returns after a 3 game suspension.
(GIBSON) "Noah has done a nice job for us. We're gonna get Ricky back this week and I think he adds another dimension to our football team, and something we've been missing. He's going to add a little bit of a burst in speed back there."
When you talk about BHS running backs-- Big names come up like Weston Dressler who's now in the Canadian Football league, UND running back Jake Miller, and most recently Layne Johs.
Galindo was behind Johs the last two seasons-- but now has a chance to join the list of storied Demon backs.
(GALINDO)"I believe if I keep working hard at it and keep going my name will be up there but I can't say for sure. It's my hope that's my goal you know Johs mentored me. I'm learning from the best and I can only hope for the best."
A sound running game is Bismarck High's cornerstone to success.
(GALINDO)"It's very important. That's always been one of our key prime examples that we gotta lead off of. We're a running football team, other teams know that and we like to stick to it. very important."
As for Dubord-- he'll be taking some notes from Galindo.
(GIBSON) "One thing Noah has to understand is Ricky is a senior and he's put his time in."
(DUBORD) "I think it's going to be fun he's had a history, he knows the game he knows what it takes to be a varsity athlete."
(GALINDO) "I've known him since I was in third grade so you know it's good. I don't even know how we're going to push each other, we push each other normally, so it's not really going to be a big thing."
Galindo played well as the backup, and coach Gibson hopes can be the spark that the Demons will need throughout the 2013 season.
