I didn't play, but the best I've ever seen is Steve Holman from Ben Davis.  The best I've ever seen on an opposing team was Darren Evans of Warren Central.

Practicing against Sherman Back and later Clint Howard was fun and I'd say Mike Pickett from Lowell

I never played against Bo Hundt but had the good fortune of keeping the stats a couple of the years he played. Coach Huber would ask me for his stats at half time because #1, didn't want him hurt, and #2, wanted to keep it classy to the other teams. Bo could have easily racked up 1500 more yards in his career.

My senior year when we went down to Indy and defeated New Pal for state, we had to get through Kokomo and their 6'1" 250lb fullback, Marcelle Kenner. Getting hit by him was like getting hit by a bus.

Rod Smith for Harding HS 2006-2009.  Monster of a back, his younger brother is Jaylon Smith from Luers.  Both now on the Dallas Cowboys.  Rod led Harding to a state title in 06 and still holds the SAC rushing record of 6,625 yards.

There has been a couple Adams, I could be mistaken but I don't think Tank Adams was ever on the team the same time as Hogan. 

Jesse Avant was a terrific Ben Davis RB too!

I played against David Catt from Tri West and Chike Okefore from West Lafayette  (spellings? )

Never played, but my biased opinion tells me Darren Evans. The only game Warren lost in his final 2 years at Warren was the one where he didn't play in. I remember him rushing for like 6 TDs or something in a game vs BD in 2006. 

As for opposing player in recent memory, Jalen Duncan from Carmel was pretty tough. I still can't forget him scampering in to beat Warren in the final seconds of the 2011 sectional final game.....

Taylor Vieck. Vincennes Lincoln. He delivered punishment every run like a bowling ball bouncing off runners. Played at St. Francis

Luke Schmidt. Jasper. Man among boys. Played at Notre Dame.

Bart Schnur. Boonville. St.F

Otis Shannon-Cathedral elusive runner with a helluva O-Line. Might be biased too but I seen and practiced against Andrew Wolf from East Central there was no one who was harder to bring down without help in practice or in a game.

Vagas Ferguson  (1975) Still have nightmares of being one on one at the corner and having him run up my front and down my back! For you young guy's after playing at Richmond he played at Notre Dame  and then 5 or 6 6 years in the NFL, most notably for the Pats.

I would say the two best I played against were both Ft. Wayne guys. Tevaughn Hurse in 2010 from New Haven, dude had wheels. The other was Remound Wright from Ft. Wayne Dwenger 2008-10, power and speed.

I never played against, but I watched Collin Miller from Hamilton Southeast. He had stellar speed and you could hear his hits from the concession stands.

Bo Hunt from Bremen High School.

This guy had it all and was very humble on the field!!  Definitely a class act.  Northern Indiana will never see a better running back!!  I played against him 91' 92' 93'

In 2005, the #1 ranked and undefeated Fort Wayne Snider Panthers came to Warsaw in Round 1 of the sectionals.  MiQuale Lewis (all 5 foot 6 inches of him) ran all over us that game.  Both he and QB/ATH Artis Chambers had a field day as they trounced us 42-7.  I thought for sure they were on a collusion course for a rematch against Warren Central at the state championship that year, but Hamilton Southeastern upset them 32-15 in the regional championship.  It was the first time Snider failed to score 20+ points since being defeated in the 2002 state championship game against Ben Davis 31-7.

MiQuale went on to have a fantastic career at Ball State, where he finished with over 3,700 yards rushing.

Not sure how the state's all time leading rusher could be left out of this conversation.... Sammy Mireles from Elwood was an absolute freak of nature, the dude tormented defenses from '10-'13.

I second this. A lot of people probably never watched him play, but Sammy made defenses look silly even though he was smaller than everyone else. He performed admirably against Jaylon Smith and his Luers teammates as well during Smith's senior year. I think he may have broken a few tackles against the future NFL linebacker as well.

Sammy Mireles was incredible to watch and play against. Dude had tree trunk legs and an extremely low center of gravity. Impossible to tackle 1 on 1. No doubt if he had any sort of top end speed he would of been playing at a big division 1 school.
