Canton running back recovers from surgery to build legacy

CANTON — LaShawn Wallace treasures every moment he can spend on the football field for Canton.

The senior running back runs around and through opponents, but he knows the one thing he can’t out-maneuver is time. Toting the football, he has left adversity behind while trying to run towards a legacy in his final season.

“This is more than likely it for me,” Wallace said this week, reflecting on a tough loss at Metamora on a cold rainy night last weekend in which he ran 10 times for 70 yards and a touchdown and caught two passes for 48 yards. “When it’s over, when high school is over, maybe I’ll work a trade, or maybe operate some machinery.

“I really don’t know. I’ve thought about playing after high school. I know it takes a lot. But honestly, these games we’re playing right now are what I’m focused on. They are still winnable.”
