The epitome of an all-purpose player, Kevin Faulk remains the SEC's leader in career all-purpose yards and LSU's all-time leading rusher. The Lafayette, Louisiana, native and cousin of 2017 inductee Marshal Faulk is the 11th Tiger player to enter the College Football Hall of Fame. A 1996 First Team All-American as an all-purpose player, Faulk set the all-time SEC record with 6,833 all-purpose yards, a mark that was fourth in FBS history when he finished his career. He led the SEC in all-purpose yards in 1996 and ranked second in the conference in rushing. Faulk followed up his All-America campaign by leading the SEC in rushing during both his junior and senior seasons. He also topped the conference in scoring as a senior. The three-time First Team All-SEC selection was the first player in LSU history to average more than 100 yards per game during his entire career. Faulk set 11 school records including LSU career marks for rushing yards (4,577), rushing touchdowns (46), all-purpose yards (6,833) and 100-yard rushing games (22).. A two-time LSU MVP, Faulk led the Tigers to two top-15 final rankings and three bowl victories, earning offensive MVP honors in the 1995 Independence Bowl by setting LSU bowl records with 234 rushing yards and 271 all-purpose yards. Faulk owns LSU's single-game all-purpose yards record (376 vs. Houston, 1996), and ranks fifth in school history with 832 punt return yards. He is also a member of the LSU Athletics and State of Louisiana Sports halls of fame. Faulk played 13 years for the New England Patriots. He still holds the franchise record for career all-purpose yards and helped them win three Super Bowls. Faulk served as an assistant football coach at his former high school, Carencro High School in Lafayette and later on the coaching staff at LSU. He annually hosts a free youth football camp in Louisiana, and he founded the Kevin Faulk Foundation to support youth.
