David King was mean.  He wanted the RBs scared of him and succeeded many times in my opinion.  Edmonds was smarter, just as aggressive, but lacked that meanness. I can't really say which was better, but I'll give King the edge, cause I enjoyed watching him make RBs eat dirt.  

Edmonds was great at making tackles 8 - 10 yards downfield .... he was part of the worst group of linebackers at U Texas in 50 years ..... That said, Edmonds was an outstanding high school player .....

He was a Fullback..... didn't play Defense in High School.

Tony Evans was starter at RB, but I thought David was 2nd RB. You're prolly right because DC and Johnny B were 84? I know Johnny B and David Mims were 85..

Joe Bob Thompson was and is a legend. Smart, physical, and always in the right place at the right time.

J.B. was a stud at Daingerfield and at Rice.

And… he used his football skill with his brain to make a helluva name and career for himself AFTER football.

Class of 86 definitely had some tough players. Ashley Lewis had his jaw broken and was on the field and played the following weeks with his jaw wired shut. Coach Alexander and Mayfield  recognized the grit and let him play.
