IU’s Coleman Added To Maxwell Award Watch List

BLOOMINGTON, Ind. – Indiana junior running back Tevin Coleman was added to the 2014 Watch List for the 78th Maxwell Award, the Maxwell Football Club announced Wednesday. The award honors the nation’s top offensive player. Coleman was previously named to the Doak Walker Award Watch List.
The Tinley Park, Ill., native is first nationally in rushing yards (1,060), rushing yards per game (176.7), rushing yards per carry (8.83), yards from scrimmage (1,194), yards from scrimmage per game (199.0), all-purpose yards (1,194) and all-purpose yards per game (199.0), tied for third in rushing touchdowns (11), tied for fourth in total touchdowns (11) and tied for fifth in scoring (11.0).
He is the fastest Hoosier to 1,000 yards and the 10th to rush for the milestone in a single season. Coleman is the first IU player to reach 1,000 yards since Levron Williams in 2001, and he owns a school record through the first six games of a year. Anthony Thompson held the previous mark with 964 in 1988.
Coleman recorded his eighth straight 100-yard game at Iowa last weekend, the longest streak in the nation and in program history (tied), en route to Big Ten Offensive Player of the Week honors. He has a rushing score in 15 straight games, also the longest streak in the nation and in program history.
