UVa tail back Kevin Parks is 74 yards away from 1,000 for the year. The last 1,000 yard rusher for UVa was Alvin Pearman back in 2004.
Senior offensive lineman Morgan Moses said, "Me and KP started out as roommates our first year and just to see how far he's came. You talk about a guy who probably had one scholarship from one D1 and that was us probably and now a guy that's going to break 1,000 yards, probably hasn't been done in a while so that's a big honor for him and it's a big honor for the offensive line. It just shows that we have been blocking, we have been doing the things that we've been taught Tuesday through Friday and it also just shows you you got a guy that's rushing near 1,000 yards that's splitting time with three running backs."
Head Coach Mike London said, "The accomplishment of having a 1,000 yard rusher is always something that running backs dream of. If you ask Kevin he'd probably trade all that in for wins."
