Running Back | Letters 1998, 2000-2002

Every program has records that seem unlikely to ever be broken. For Cincinnati one of the records most unlikely to fall belongs to DeMarco McCleskey. Over the course of his career McCleskey scored 37 rushing touchdowns and 41 touchdowns overall. Neither record is likely to be met or surpassed anytime soon. Isaiah Pead is, in my estimation the best running back in UC history but he only scored 27 rushing TD's, and 33 overall.

McCleskey was the focal point of the offense almost from the day he stepped foot on campus in Clifton and with Deontay Kenner formed a very dynamic 1-2 punch on the ground. McCleskey saved his best season for his last season. Breaking in a Freshman QB McCkleskey unleashed a monster year rushing for 1,361 yards on 315 carries, both single season records, scoring 15 rushing TD's and 2 receiving TD's and pitching in 368 receiving yards. It was the greatest single season a Bearcats running back ever had.
