Kansas State Football 2017: All-Time Leaders in Rushing Yards, Over the years, K-State football has become a fierce rushing team. From guys like Darren Sproles to John Hubert to even some of their quarterbacks like Collin Klein and Ell Roberson, the Wildcats are always a team on the verge of making a huge play on the ground. To pass the time between now and the start of the 2017 season, here are the all-time leaders in rushing yards for Kansas State Football 2017. Kicking off the list at number 15 is L.J. Brown, who amassed 1,580 rushing yards over three seasons in Manhattan. Brown was at Kansas State from 1978-1980 but never had a 1,000-yard season.
Brown’s 1978 season saw him run the football 62 times for 337 yards and only one touchdown. He improved in 1979, where he had 148 carries for 668 yards and five touchdowns. His final season in 1980 was his most in touchdowns with six, but he had 575 yards on the ground. Brown’s 1,580 rushing yards are still good for 15th all-time in Kansas football history. He recorded 13 total touchdowns (12 rushing, one receiving) over three years as a Wildcat. L.J. Brown isn’t a big name to Kansas State fans, as he played with the team during some bad seasons, but he is still hanging onto his spot in the top 15 all-time rushers for the school!
Kansas State on Friday announced it will take measures to partially circumvent the state’s Personal and Family Protection Act, which will allow persons over 21 to carry concealed weapons on university campuses starting Saturday. In order to keep concealed guns out of its sporting events, Kansas State will increase security detail at its football and men’s and women’s basketball games by adding more armed officers and metal detectors.

MORE: Arkansas fears SEC membership in jeopardy in wake of new gun law. “This law has been in effect, but universities had a four-year exemption to plan and put policies and procedures in place before the law affected the campuses,” said Casey Scott, senior associate athletics director for operations and events management. “That exemption expires July 1, and we have made the decision that we will restrict weapons allowed into our athletic events at Bill Snyder Family Stadium and Bramlage Coliseum.
“Under state law, concealed carry may be restricted in areas where the university has established temporary adequate security measures (ASMs) or restricted access entrances.” Kansas isn’t the only state whose universities have needed to adapt to controversial gun laws. In Georgia, fans are not allowed to carry concealed weapons at Georgia or Georgia Tech football games, though laws permit them to be carried at tailgates. Source Link
