JACKSONVILLE, Fla. -- The Jacksonville University football team is in the midst of the most successful run in the program's short history. One of the biggest reasons that the Dolphins have had back to back winning seasons for the first time ever is running back Rudell Small.
As he gets ready for his senior season, Small is already the school's all-time leading rusher, and he holds the career record for most touchdowns scored.
It's expected that Rudell will be on the watch list for the Walter Payton Award which is the equivalent of the Heisman Trophy in the Football Championship Subdivision (formerly known as Division I-AA). Previous winners of this award include Tony Romo and Brian Westbrook, and Steve McNair.
For more on this talented young man who is the "ambassador of the program" according to JU head coach Kerwin Bell, watch the video clip attached to this story.
