Barner’s Final Stand
Thursday night marks the final game for Senior tailback, Kenjon Barner, to don the Oregon green and yellow. The second leading rusher in Oregon Duck history leaves behind a legacy of jaw-dropping runs, eye-popping touchdowns, and a bevy of memories for all Oregon football fans. Coming into the Fiesta Bowl, Barner has amassed 1,624 rushing yards and 21 touchdowns this season, while being 181 yards away from breaking the single-season school rushing record. He was not just a product of an explosive, Chip Kelly offensive system; he possesses many key traits that make him an intriguing NFL prospect. His quickness, speed, and versatility will provide Barner a great shot to make an impact at the next level. This Associated Press second team All-American will showcase these talents at the 2013 Senior Bowl and is rated as a top-8 running back prospect for this April’s NFL draft.
