Roberts becomes UC's all time leading rusher

Posted: Updated:

The University of Charleston got back to their winning ways Saturday when they knocked off Fairmont State 30 to 20. Senior running back Jordan Roberts put himself in the record books. On the day he rushed for 148 yards and in the process, took over the schools all time rushing record. His totals,  2,338 yards. And Roberts still has six games to go to add to that total. Charleston head coach Pat Kirkland says it's a combination of a good back and a good offensive line.

"He's a great player," said Kirkland, "a good back and you know he goes as our front five guys go and they blocked their tails off and put him in a position to get some carries and get some yards."

Roberts will get the chance to add to that total Saturday when Seton Hill comes to U-C Stadium.
