Ty Murphy sets up to throw during a game earlier in his Eupora career.

Murphy fought through that injury all season and still was productive running for 756 yards and five touchdowns and passing for 848 and seven more scores, but he wasn’t the same. The year prior, Murphy rushed for 1,226 yards and threw for 720. He was an All-Area player and the heart and soul of the Eagle team as just a sophomore.
