5. Robert Fowler, RB, 1974
Fowler, a running back, was the heart of Palo Verde’s offense during its undefeated championship run in 1973. Fowler finished second in the city in rushing during the regular season, despite being hampered by injuries. But, the eventual state title gave the 180-pound back 1,115 yards on the year for the rushing title and earned him a first-team All-State honor to go along with the AAA championship. Fowler had 21 carries for 81 yards and a score in the Titans’ 22-20 victory over Camelback.
