Future WSU corner eyes rushing immortality

AUSTIN JOYNER, a two-way standout for Marysville-Pilchuck and a future Washington State cornerback, wants to make his final season on offense one to remember. If he hits his goal, he'll rush for 2,000 yards this season and enter the state's all-time top 10 for career rushing yards. If he adds another 125 hashes, the Seattle Times notes, he'll enter the all-time top five.

As a junior last season Joyner averaged nearly 20 yards per carry, but injury cost him some games and he didn't approach the 1,981 yards he rushed for as a sophomore.

A healthy 2014 figures to push his career ground total to close to 6,000 yards.

But then that will be it for ball carrying, he tells Doug Drowley of the Times, in this feature story counting down to Friday's start of the high school grid season in the state of Washington.
