Former All-Ohio Stallion Running Back Warren Ball was listed among the top 40 of college football’s top workout warriors by Sports Illustrated. Ball, a senior at Akron, rushed for 181 yards in two games before suffering a season-ending injury.
Here is the excerpt from Sports Illustrated:
"The former Ohio State back spent three seasons in the Big Ten (behind Carlos Hyde and Ezekiel Elliott) before joining the Zips. This spring he was granted a sixth year of eligibility. Ball had started the first two games of the 2016 season and piled up 181 yards and a touchdown on 25 carries before getting injured in Week 2 against Wisconsin. The 6’3”, 230-pounder is quite the physical specimen. He vertical jumps 39 inches, broad jumps 10’8”, was clocked at 4.4 in the 40 and only has 3% body fat. It’ll be interesting to see what Ball can do if he can stay healthy this fall in the MAC."
While at DeSales, Ball tallied 2,361 career rushing yards and scored 47 touchdowns in 30 games for the Stallions.
As a senior, he was recognized as a First Team All-Ohio selection after setting a school-record with 29 touchdowns.
