Last white RB to gain a 1000 yards?

Postby 34=Sweetness » Tue Aug 19, 2008 8:10 pm

I was trying to think of this, and for as long as I've watched football and remembered it (93-94), I can't think of any white RB that did this. My best guess would be John Riggins, but I couldn't find the answer on Google. Any one got any idea? :-b

I can't even think of any white running backs period.

How weird! My neighbors and i crought this up a few months ago and we couldn't think of the answer. We came up with plenty of FB's but no RB's.

Bizzare!

Hope we get an answer to this ;-D

I can't find any archive, or list of 1,000 yard rushers in the NFL, much less one that calls out their race. But, I would guess it probably was Riggins, who ran for 1,200+ yards in 1984.

Ha, Craig James in 1985 was the answer I guess. And he'll probably be the last one ever, right?

Craig James '85' Patriots 1,227 yards
John Riggins '84' Redskins 1,347 yards
John Riggins '83' Redskins 1,239 yards
Franco Harris '79' Steelers 1,186 yards


Last 4 to do it. Apparently Franco Harris was part white. :-b

Justin Fargas? He looks like at least one parent is white.
