UMass' Steve Baylark ran himself into the NCAA record books Saturday as he became only the third player in I-AA history to run for 1,000 yards in four straight seasons.
His career totals as of Saturday are: GP 42/34 carries 913 yards 4,264 ave 4.7 36 TD longest 58 yards.
He joins former Georgia Southern RB Adrian Peterson and former UNH RB Jerry Azumah in the 1,000 yard/season club .
Baylark is currently 8th in rushing in I-AA this year (and with only one yard/game separating 6th through 8th positions).
Baylark is current 3rd all time in rushing in UMass history. He needs 360 yards to pass UMass legend Rene Ingoglia for second place.
Congratulations to Steve from all UMass fans!
