Greene named a Doak Walker finalist

IOWA CITY - University of Iowa running back Shonn Greene has been named a finalist for the prestigious Doak Walker Award.

The award is given annually to college football's top running back. The winner will be announced Dec. 11th on the Home Depot ESPNU College Football Awards show from Orlando, FL.

Greene, a 5-11, 235-pound junior from Sicklerville, NJ, rushed for an Iowa record 1,729 yards this season. He now owns the season rushing record, once held by Tavian Banks (1,691). He rushed for over 100-yards in every game this season, the only player in the country to do so. Greene leads the nation with a 6.2 yards per carry average (min. 215 attempts).

The other finalists for the Doak Walker Award are Michigan State's Javon Ringer and Georgia's Knowshon Moreno. Greene ranks ahead of both in virtually all running back categories this year.
