Junior running back Terrance West, a Baltimore native, is set to break the record books while helping his team advance to the NCAA FCS Campionship Game on January 4 in Frisco, Texas.
West broke the NCAA FCS playoff single-game rushing record against Eastern Illinois with 354 yards. He also scored five, yes FIVE touchdowns in the win.
He is one of three finalists for the Walter Payton Award and has tied the NCAA FCS single-season touchdown record with 39 touchdowns this year.
Terrance West is not about to get caught up in the records though. He just wants to help this Towson football team do something they have never done before…win a national championship.
A humble and focused West spoke about his thoughts on breaking records after Friday’s win over Eastern Illinois.
“I’m not concerned about records. This is all about winning.”
West and the rest of the Towson Tigers football team are representing Maryland in a big way and are living up to the famous quote from Wedding Crashers,
“Crab cakes and football, that’s what Maryland does!”
