Rewriting the Football Record Book

Running back Chris Jacoubs ’07 of the Moravian football team has been rewriting the rushing and scoring parts of the Moravian record books since he set foot on campus in 2003. This season has been no different, as Jacoubs has passed three more of the career marks of Jim Joseph ’86, the previous holder.

As of October 15, Jacoubs holds the all-time career records of rushing yards (3,624), rushing attempts (694), yards per rush (5.22), touchdowns (35), and points (210). He also holds the single-season marks for rushing yards (1,789), rushing attempts (342), touchdowns (19), and points (114), all during the 2004 season. Jacoubs owns the single-game records for rushing yards and attempts (319 yards on 51 carries in 2003), and he set the game mark for yards per carry earlier this season (164 yards on just 11 carries, or 14.9 yards per rush) in a victory over Juniata College.

Jacoubs has gone over the 100-yard mark in 17 of 23 career starts, with four games over the 200-yard plateau. He also owns four of the top six single-game rushing totals in school history, including the top two.
