Class of 1991

The only Army football player to have compiled multiple 1,000-yard rushing seasons, Mike Mayweather eclipsed the 1,000-yard plateau three times in his career en route to establishing the Academy's career rushing record with 4,299 ground markers.

So dominant was Mayweather that he eclipsed Army's career rushing record--held by legendary running back Glenn Davis--in the final game of his junior season. In a sparkling senior campaign, Mayweather set the Academy's single-season rushing standard with 1,337 yards, was named a first-team All-American and finished 10th in the Heisman Trophy voting.

In addition to his rushing record, Mayweather forged Academy standards for all-purpose yards (5,594) and 100-yard rushing games (21). He also ranked second in kickoff return yards (1,114) and fourth in scoring (230). Mayweather amassed 1,022 ground yards in 1988, helping the Black Knights to a date opposite Alabama in the John Hancock Sun Bowl, before compiling 1,177 markers as a junior in 1989.
