Editor's note: They’re the most exciting players on the field. Blink, and you might miss something spectacular. In the past, football coaches tried to fit certain players into a specific mold. But the do-it-all athlete can’t be placed in a box. They’re a threat from multiple positions. This week’s preview series takes a look at some of the best athletes in the Bi-City area for 2014.
Never miss a local story.

Why he's on the list: Khane Pass is a weapon Carver can and does use in multiple places on the football field.
Primarily, he’s a defensive back, and was very effective at the position last season. More than that, though, he’s a solid return man and is used on occasion on offense, playing in the slot or halfback positions, where he gets the ball from his brother Jawon and tries to make something happen.
His offensive numbers from last season weren’t available for this blog, and I’m not sure how overwhelming the specific stats would be. Stats aside, though, has great straight-line speed and changes directions better than anyone else on the field in most games.
He’s a lot to handle wherever he’s at on the field, and that’s one reason a handful of premier Division-I colleges are battling for his services next year.
