Super 30: No. 29 LaRone Richardson, Bishop McGuinness...
By Robert Przybylo
I remember the first time I saw Bishop McGuinness running back LaRone Richardson. It was in the 2008 Class 4A final against Glenpool, and my eyes got wide open when I learned he was just a sophomore.
‘Two more years with this kid, huh? He’s gonna be a star.’
His junior year would have/should have been the year that put him on the national map, but the injuries took that away from him.
However, if he can keep those legs healthy, he is something special. I saw glimpses of that last week at the Edmond North team camp.
In the final scrimmage of the three-day event, the Irish went up against Deer Creek and Richardson scored both of the team’s touchdowns.
He is so explosive and once he hits a hole, boom, he hits it.
It hurt to be at half speed for most of last year, but it does open the door to any top school to come in and swoop up one of the best talents.
Richardson said some of the schools that really appeal to him are Miami (Fla.) and Texas Tech because of the offensive systems in place at those universities.
It will be very interesting to see how his summer progresses.
