Records within reach for Hopewell's Shell

Rushel Shell of Hopewell is the nation's No. 3 running back in the ESPNU 150 Danny Vega/ESPNHS

Hopewell senior Rushel Shell graced the cover of the September issue of our ESPNHS Pennsylvania magazine, which hit schools this week. Shell, rated the nation's No. 24 player and No. 3 running back in the ESPNU 150, enters this season on the verge of some impressive state records. By equaling his rushing totals from his junior season, he'll end his career as Pennsylvania's all-time leading rusher.

In an interview with the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review, Shell has indicated he's made his college choice but isn't announcing his decision until October, possibly to coincide with Hopewell's nationally televised game against Central Valley on Oct. 14.
