No. 3: Harvey Unga

BYU football’s former all-time leading rusher, Unga was a game-changing and nearly unstoppable runner for the Cougars.

Unga played at BYU from 2006-2009 and  ran for 100 or more yards 15 times in his career. He averaged five yards per carry in his career and ran for double-digit touchdowns and 1,000+ yards in three straight seasons.

Unga left BYU after his junior season, finishing with 4,540 total yards and 45 touchdowns in his career.

Now Unga is a graduate assistant on head coach Kalani Sitake‘s staff. He had a front-row seat as Jamaal Williams broke his career rushing record. But we’ll get to Williams in a bit.
