Oh God He's Pulsing - ECU's Impact Player Chris Johnson

4real and Dom can vouch for the ludicrous choices I made while playing NCAA football '05 and '06 when picking East Carolina University to play against either Ohio State or Notre Dame. However, the Pirates had a nasty little running back that was good for atleast 4 touchdowns a game and gave me a little laugh as 4real and Dom struggle to stop him(except for AJ Hawk that wirey bastard). Well now that little MVP has graduated and made a name for himself at the combine. Here's some ECU love.

oh and also a small blurb about his college career...

In 2007, Johnson established a new Conference USA record with an average of 227.69 all-purpose yards per game. That figure led the nation, and he was 24th with 109.5 rushing yards per game. He became the 24th player in Division 1-A history to amass more than 6,000 all-purpose yards in a career.

In 47 games at East Carolina, Johnson became the 11th player in school history to rush for more than 2,000 yards in a career, amassing 2,982 yards with 32 touchdowns on 624 attempts. He holds the school career-record for running backs with 125 receptions for 1,296 yards and 10 touchdowns. He became the first player in school history to amass more than 5,000 all-purpose yards in a career, totaling 6,993 yards.

Not too shabby, EA sports props for showing the love.
