It can still be a bit staggering to watch the burst of speed Tevin Coleman could produce out of the backfield at IU. And that burst often led to breakaway touchdown runs by the Illinois product.
Here you can see all of those big plays in one place. The Big Ten Network put together a video of Coleman’s greatest plays at Indiana.
In 2014 junior season Coleman became the 18th player in FBS history to reach 2,000 rushing yards in a single season. He was Indiana’s third unanimous and consensus All-American and he finished seventh in the Heisman Trophy voting. Perhaps most impressive, Coleman did much of his damage in 2014 after starting quarterback Nate Sudfeld went down with a season-ending injury, and IU had little threat of a passing game.
Coleman declared early entry into the 2015 National Football League Draft on December 29, 2014. He is currently with the New York Jets.
