The Nevada Wolf Pack football program has been blessed with many outstanding running backs.
One is in the College Football Hall of Fame, two of them led the nation in rushing and another finished second, one played in a Super Bowl, two were part of the greatest rushing backfield in NCAA history and another owns the NCAA record for touchdowns scored in a game.
A total of 15 different Wolf Pack running backs have turned in 26 seasons of 1,000 yards or more with all of them taking place since 1977.
There's been a Stefph, a Kretch, a Hawk, a Lip, a Vic, a B.J., a Lem, a Corley, an Otto and a Minor, not to mention a Floyd, Foger and Ferguson.
The list is so exclusive that two guys who each scored five touchdowns in a game (Johnny Gordon in 1984 and Mike Ball in 2009) and one (Ray Whalen) who carried the ball 44 times in one of the most important victories in school history (the I-AA semifinals against Boise State in 1990) can't even crack the Top 12.
