Dallas Cowboys: Fred Taylor
Move over, Emmitt Smith. There's a new Florida rushing champ.
Glades Day (Belle Glade, Fla.) junior running back Kelvin Taylor ran for 388 yards on 34 carries in a 43-29 win over South Fork (Stuart, Fla.) on Friday night to move into first place on the Florida career rushing list with 8,975 yards. The previous mark of 8,804 yards was held since 1986 by Smith, who played for Escambia (Pensacola, Fla.).
Taylor is also just 2,258 yards from breaking the national record of 11,232 yards set by Ken Hall of Sugar Land (Texas) in 1953.
Taylor, the son of former NFL star running back Fred Taylor, ran for six touchdowns against South Fork to push his Florida-record total to 141. He'll have a chance to add to both Florida marks when Glades Day opens the Class 2A playoffs next week against Champagnat Catholic (Hialeah, Fla.).
