Leddie Brown Reaches 1,000 Yard Rushing Mark



During the WVU-Kansas game, senior running back Leddie Brown became one of an elite group of West Virginia running backs to reach more than 1,000 rushing yards in a season. He entered the game only 91 yards shy, with 909 yards and 12 rushing touchdowns on 204 attempts.

In 14 attempts tonight against the Kansas Jayhawks, Brown earned 94 rushing yards to reach the 1,000-yard threshold. He sits at 1,003 yards with a quarter and a half to play in the final regular season game. He is still 741 yards shy of 2006 Steve Slaton, who logged 1,744 rushing yards and holds the program’s record for most yards rushed in a single season.

Even still, Brown’s the 17th player to ever reach the 1,000-yard threshold, and this marks the second consecutive 1,000+ yard season for the senior. He’s only the eighth player in program history to reach the threshold twice in his career, let alone consecutively.
