# 10 Kenneth Davis

The "Temple Tornado" set a school record with 1,611 yards rushing in 1984 while leading the Frogs to their first bowl birth in 19 years. In the process Davis was made a unanimous selection to the All-American team after rushing for 200 yards in three games and over 100 in 6 more. Davis finished as the second leading rusher in TCU history. Davis surely would have obliterated the school record had he not been suspended for all but one game his senior season.

Davis was a second round pick of the Green Bay Packers in 1986 where he led the team in rushing each of his first two seasons. Following an injury filled third season he was traded to the Bills where he played an important role in helping lead the Bills to four straight Super Bowls.

Davis is currently head football coach and AD at Bishop Dunne Catholic School in Dallas.

Up next: A wide receiver whose son decided to follow in his father's footsteps.

Couple of thoughts:
Hodge is huge...and scary
Both of our corners look like they have beefed up
Schlueter and Phillips, make me want to cry
Turner looks like he is ready to pound someone...facial hair is creepy though
