HEAD COACH KYLE HOCKMAN
"As a running back, he's one of the very best I've ever coached. He's a very powerful, slashing-type runner who breaks a lot of tackles. He also has really quick feet, but his trademark is turning a 6-yard gain into a 15-yarder.
"I'm sure you want to talk about Rajaan on the football field, but I promise he's a better person than he is player. He has a great head on his shoulders, a guy that has been the man in his household for quite a while, yet still worked to maintain a solid GPA in class and become such a great player.
"Rajaan is both humble and hard working. He's a guy that is very respected by his teammates and the McEachern community. I think the world of this young man."
