Story Archives: Time for lists
|Time for lists|
You know what happens when it gets real slow. It's time for lists.
So not to buck the system, here's a list of my favorite running backs I've watched through the years at LSU. So remember, these are backs I have watched in person (sorry Billy Cannon and Johnny Robinson and Jerry Stovall and Joe Labruzzo and Jimmy Taylor).
No. 10: Charles Alexander. Alexander the Great. Never forget how he ran straight up and the burst of speed he possessed once getting through the line.
Alexander finished with 40 career touchdowns from 1975-78, which ranks third among Tiger running backs.
Very humble individual. One of Charles McClendon's prize recruits. Alexander is from Galveston and for McClendon to claim a blue chipper out of state was quite a coup in those days.
