  • Justice Hill Nears Freshman Rushing Record With Fourth 100-Yard Performance

    first_imgAnd now he is quickly closing in on the freshman rushing record.Mike Hamilton (961 yards)Jamaal Fobbs (928 yards)Thurman Thomas (843 yards)Justice Hill (792 yards)Andre Richardson (774 yards)Kendall Hunter (696 yards)Keith Toston (631 yards)Rafael Denson (569 yards)At 5.1 yards per carry, Hill probably needs around 35-40 carries to set the record and potentially even break the 1,000-yard mark. If he stays healthy, it seems like the bowl game would be your best bet for that happening. Mike Gundy noted this week that Hill has seemingly gotten beyond being a freshman.“I think he’s already gone through [the freshman wall],” said Gundy. “He’s doing really well.”Hill and Chris Carson have helped re-revolutionize the OSU offense late in the season. The ways a successful run game opens up the offense are innumerable.“It’s fun to be able to run the ball well,” said offensive coordinator Mike Yurcich. “It gives you a tremendous balance. It takes the stress off the quarterback. It alleviates a lot of different pressures. We were able to call a couple of different looks. The guys in the box did a good job communicating. Whenever you’re able to have balance it makes it harder to defend. It was good control.”Hill was in fifth grade the last time OSU lost to Texas Tech. It was clear on Saturday he did not want that streak to end with him at running back. And now Oklahoma State has found its running game of the present as well as the future. Justice as RB1.

Justice Hill notched his fourth 100-yard rushing game of the season with an 18-carry 126-yard show against Texas Tech on Saturday. It is his fourth 100-yard game of the year which is the most ever for a freshman running back at OSU.The most ever.It’s not like OSU’s running back history has been poor either. Hill is up to 792 yards on the season largely because of insane, eye-popping runs like this one. He had a bundle of them against the Red Raiders. All four of his 100-yard outings have come in Big 12 play.last_img read more
