This kid is amazing


Recommended Posts

Here is an article about a running back in Florida who just set the Florida High School record for yards in his career, surpassing Emmitt Smith. The kid has good pedigree being the son of former NFL running back Fred Taylor. The most amazing part:

The total gives Taylor 8,975 yards - or 171 yards more than Smith finished with at Pensacola (Fla.) in 1986.

Ironically, perhaps the only thing his father couldn't do on the football field is surpass the greatness of Smith, who he followed at the University of Florida and then the NFL.

That won't be an issue for his son.

The only thing more amazing than breaking Smith's 25-year-old mark is how far he potentially could surpass it. Taylor, who still has the playoffs remaining this season, is only a junior.
