Rodney Woods stood on the Littlerock High sidelines, grasping a water bottle and listening to coaches and teammates compare him to Adam Sandler's lead character in the movie "The Water Boy."

His place wasn't holding a jug of liquid, it was showing off the fluid running style that had made him the best tailback in a league that thrives on the ground game.

Littlerock 26, Etiwanda 20--Littlerock's passing game struggled, but Rodney Woods rushed for 226 yards in 26 carries and scored on runs of 29, 50, 61 and 10 yards at Littlerock. Richard Newton completed three of 14 passes for 44 yards for the Lobos, with six drops.
