Shonn Greene Takes Down Doak Walker Award

Sayre BedingerSenior Writer IDecember 12, 2008

Iowa running back Shonn Greene was rewarded for his stellar play this season, taking home his first piece of hardware in the form of the Doak Walker Award.

Greene led the Big Ten with 1,729 rushing yards, with a game low of 103.  He was the only running back in the country to average over 100 yards per game.

After averaging 6.2 yards per carry and finding dirt 17 times, Greene set Iowa school records for rushing yards in a single season, and had Hawkeye fans talking Heisman.

In addition to the Doak Walker Award, Greene has been named as a first team All-American by many, as well as a consensus All-Big Ten first team selection, and Big Ten Offensive player of the year.

Greene's superb production has helped get the Hawkeyes back into a bowl game, and Iowa will play South Carolina in the Outback Bowl.
