Nick Ruffin (6'0/175) plays wingback and defensive back for his St. Pius team in Atlanta, Ga. 

Despite his lack of bulk, a lean 175 pounds, Ruffin isn't afraid to throw his body around and make big hits or get into the fray with fullbacks coming up the middle. 

Wingbacks in a double-wing offense are notoriously selfless, because they are asked to do the dirty work which includes a lot of blocking.

Lovett keyed on Ruffin on the option pitch and limited Ruffin's touches, but Ruffin was able to make his impact felt, literally, on defense.

With good size and physical nature, Ruffin projects ideally at cornerback for the Auburn Tigers, where he has been committed since the Spring.
