A big reason for the Eagles’ 4-1 start this season is senior running back Aleck Russon. In wins over Timpanogos and Murray in Skyline’s last two games, Russon has rushed for over 600 yards and scored 10 touchdowns. His 303-yard effort against Timpanogos broke a 10-year-old Skyline single-game rushing record. Because of a surprising home loss to Cedar City, the Eagles have been ignored a bit in the 4A race to state.
