With new starters at the skill positions on offense, the Colfax football team will rely on Tim Rawlins to continue his consistent production.

After a sophomore season that saw Rawlins tally 694 rushing yards, and a junior campaign in which he topped 1,000 yards in just eight games, the dynamic running back has proven he’s an asset.

Now a senior, Rawlins is a leader on a Colfax team looking to return to the playoffs. He’s also looking to cement his status as one of the top running backs in Falcons’ history.

We grabbed Rawlins for five good questions to get his take on the upcoming season.

The Union: How far do you think this team can go?

Rawlins: I think we can win sections.

The Union: What goals have you set for yourself this season?

Rawlins: I personally want to break the school record for the most rushing yards in a career. That’s my main goal. I’m 700 yards away, so I should be able to do that.

The Union: What team are you most looking forward to playing this year?

Rawlins: I’m looking forward to playing Placer the most. I’ve lost to them the past two years, so I think my senior year is the time to beat them. I’m just going to try and play my hardest.

The Union: What’s the biggest factor to staying healthy and on the field?

Rawlins: My biggest factor is making sure I don’t get any head injuries this year. That’s basically it.

The Union: If you weren’t a running back, what position would you see yourself playing?

Rawlins: If I wasn’t a running back? I would probably want to play tight end. ‘Cause it seems like a fun position and you get to do it all. You get to block, catch passes, and it just seems like a fun position.
