Remember Kapri Bibbs?

The former Colorado State and Plainfield North star has a tryout with the Denver Broncos as an undrafted free agent. Bibbs rushed for an almost record* 520 yards and seven touchdowns in a game against Oswego in October, 2010. From an article in the Denver Post (my emphasis): 

The Broncos like Bibbs for a couple of reasons. One, they know he has the type of pure running skills that translate to the NFL. He not only rushed for 1,741 yards and averaged 6.2 per carry last season, his 31 touchdowns that led the nation proved he knows how to negotiate through goal-line scrums. 

Two, he comes from a pro-style offense at CSU and coach Jim McElwain, who is respected in the NFL. 

"I know I have the talent to play at the top level," Bibbs said. "I know there are guys at the top and I'm a guy who is trying to fight the guys at the top."

Good luck Kapri!

* The IHSA record for most yards rushing in a game is 593, held by DeAndre Hooper of Austin in a game against Near North on Oct. 19, 1996. Hooper scored six touchdowns that day.
