Transcript Metric }a*io*b Senior tailback Ketric Sanford breaks four school records, including UH's all-time rush When the 1999 football season began, many questioned whether Ketric Sanford could break Chuck Weatherspoon's all-time school rushing record. He needed only 801 yards, which was very attainable for a back of Sanford's abilities. The 5-8, 204-pounder from Corsicana had rushed for 1,054 yards just one year before, but a slow start (102 yards in the first two games) had people wondering. Have no fear. Sanford silenced the critics by not only breaking the school's rushing mark, but three other illustrious marks, including career rushes (743), touchdowns (28) and all- purpose yards. The senior rushed for a season-high 212 yards against Tulane on Nov. 6 and scored two touchdowns on three different occasions, not to mention a three-touchdown game Oct. 23 at Louisville. ing mark The lietuc fytteiH SANFORD'S FINISHES IN THE UH RECORD BOOKS Career Rushing Yards (Rushes-Yds.) 1.

In addition to his record-setting numbers, Sanford also had an uncanny ability to hold on to the football during his playing days as a Cougar. Since late in the game against Minnesota on Sept. 12, 1998, Sanford touched the ball 385 times via rushing, receiving and returning before coughing up a fumble against Tulane on Nov. 6. In his collegiate career, Sanford lost the ball a total of eight times in 873 touches, a truly amazing feat. UH has been flooded in past years with players of great caliber, character and desire. Sanford, without question, qualifies as one of those special people. • by Josh Gajewski Ketric Sanford prepares for a punt return against Army on Nov. 20.
