Page 2’s David Fleming wrote a very interesting piece about Giants running back Brandon Jacobs.

You can ready Fleming’s piece here:

Among the highlights:

• Standing at 6-4 and weighing 245 pounds, Jacobs rushed for 3,022 yards and 38 touchdowns as a senior at Assumption High in Louisiana.

“High school kids were flat-out afraid to tackle him. He was a freak of nature, a legend, the kind of player we won't ever see again in our lifetime,” said Lee Brecheen, editor of Louisiana Football Magazine.

• Jacobs wore No. 46 in high school, and his nickname was Toby.
