ROANOKE, Va. (WFXR)– Patrick Henry Sophomore Running Back Ar’ juan “Chuck” Webb overcoming adversity is what this athlete does best – not only has he returned to the field after a serious injury – he had 4 touchdowns for 290 yards in his teams 44-7 win over hidden valley last friday – and he’s your player of the week.
“I felt good coming out there and doing what I did after the two-week injury, but you know my linemen played a big part of that too. I just went out on the field and when I hit the field it just all came to me. During the game I was ready but the days leading up to the game I had some doubts, and I was kind of nervous coming back, but we got there. I took it personal, and I knew what I had to go out there and do so I produced. I mean it’s just any other game we came out there and showed them what we had in us,” said Webb.
“My teammates….They’re my brothers really. We have a strong bond on and off the field it’s beyond football. I’ve been doing this since I was 6 years old. My whole family really has been behind my back since I was younger. Keeping me on track and all of that. I do it for my grandma and my grandad. They passed away and I go out there and shine for them every night. My grandma had a big role she was there, and she was the bond of the family. My grandad my mom’s dad was there for me a lot too. I wish he would’ve had a chance to see me play before he passed but he’s watching over me now so I’m good with it. They can’t come out and sit in the stands and watch me play so I make everybody that can see me play proud,” said Webb.
“I’ve been wanting to go to the NFL since I was younger. That’s been my dream, so I’ve just been going at it and grinding as you see. The coaches they get on us every day. You know they push us and most of the players we know each other outside of football so we have that bond already. We’re not just a run team. We can do anything and don’t count us out. Trust I wasn’t there those two weeks and we still produced so it’s not just about me or the run. We can do it all,” said Webb.
