GAINESVILLE, Fla. -- Florida running back commit Kelvin Taylor (Belle Glades, Fla./Glades Day) continues his assault on the rushing record books. Taylor surpassed NFL Hall of Famer Emmitt Smith as the state's all-time leading rusher as a junior, and after a 218-yard and five-touchdown performance in a 49-34 victory over Clewiston (Fla.) Friday night, Taylor has his sights set on the national four-year record of 11,232 set by Ken Hall of Sugarland (Texas) from 1950-1953.

The 5-foot-11, 205-pound back, who has started on varsity since his eighth-grade year, has totaled an astounding 10,256 rushing yards and 161 touchdowns in his career. He has already totaled 726 rushing yards and 13 touchdowns in only three games in his senior season.

The ESPN 150 athlete committed to the Gators on Feb. 18, and the Under Armour All-American continues to be the No. 1-ranked running back in the country.
