Ka'Deem Carey (USA Today Sports)

Arizona running back Ka’Deem Carey is only a junior and has already set or tied 16 Arizona rushing records. This season, Carey has rushed for 1,221 yards and 11 touchdowns, and the Wildcats have begun a campaign to get Carey noticed for All-American consideration, touting the Tucson native as “Captain All-America.” Seriously.

Carey was a consensus All-American and first team All-Pac 12 selection in 2012, so his success is not exactly a secret. With that said, the country may not aware of the decorated career Carey has had for the Wildcats.

With 3,575 career rushing yards, he is just 249 yards shy of the school all-time rushing record and is second in the nation with 152.6 rushing yards per game and has racked up 12 consecutive 100-yard rushing performances, including a 366-yard outburst against Colorado last season.

All of his accomplishments were compiled by U of A. The list is extensive.
