Cyclones' Robinson up for Doak Walker Award


AMES (KWWL) -- Iowa State running back Alexander Robinson is a candidate for the 2010 Doak Walker Award. The award is presented annually to the nation's top college running back.

Last year, Robinson became the first Cyclone back to rush for more than 1,000 yards since 2004. Robinson averaged 5.2 yards a carry for 1,195 yards on the season. Robinson did this despite missing time because of a groin injury. He rushed for more than 100 yards in six games including a career-high 152 yards and two scores at Kansas. He is the 13th player in Iowa State history to have 2,000 rushing yards in his career.
