Washington football heroes: Myles Gaskin

You can make an argument that Myles Gaskin is the greatest running back in the history of Washington football. Just three games into his Husky career, he took the starting job away from Dwayne Washington and never looked back.

During his time with the Huskies, Gaskin rushed for 1,200 yards in each of his four seasons, and only missed eclipsing the 1,300 yard mark in his senior year, which was slowed by injuries. He joined Wisconsin legend, Ron Dayne, as the only two players in NCAA history to hit the 1,200 yard mark on the ground in all four seasons of eligibility.
