Herndon Running Back Achieves Success Before Injury Setback


Herndon’s Josh Schow leads rushing touchdowns at Guilford College in North Carolina before suffering knee injury.

Josh Schow, of Herndon, recently completed the 2015 football season at Guilford College.

Schow appeared in three of the Quakers’ games this season at running back before suffering a season-ending knee injury. He totaled 30 carries for 148 rushing yards with three touchdowns over the team’s first three outings. His best game was a 79-yard performance with a touchdown against Methodist University September 12.

Schow will receive a medical redshirt and plans to return to Guilford next year to complete his eligibility. He is Guilford’s all-time leader in rushing touchdowns with 23 and ranks third in career rushing yards with 1,889.

Coach Chris Rusiewicz’s Quakers (9-1, 6-1 Old Dominion Athletic Conference) set at least 29 Guilford records in the best football season in school history. The team’s nine wins and six league victories both set school standards. Rusiewicz could return as many as 17 starters in 2016, including Schow.
