Don McCauley proud of breakthrough '70 season

Don McCauley will be enshrined in the N.C. Sports Hall of Fame tonight, and the former North Carolina tailback did much to earn his plaque in the hall. In 1970, his senior season at UNC, he rushed for 1,720 yards, breaking O.J. Simpson's NCAA record. He scored 21 touchdowns, then an ACC record, and had 279 yards rushing and five TDs against Duke. He was the ACC's player of the year and later named ACC athlete of the year. (Raleigh News & Observer)
