Kansas State all-time leaders in rushing yards: 14: Tony Jordon (1,593)
At number 14 is Tony Jordan, who spent all four years of his collegiate career with the Kansas State Wildcats. Jordan only had nine rushing touchdowns during that time, but his 1,593 rushing yards still put him fairly high in the record books.
Jordan spent time at K-State from 1984-1987, which were some downright AWFUL seasons for the Wildcats. They never won more than three games during Jordan’s tenure in Manhattan and went winless in his senior season.

Jordan’s best season was during his junior year in 1986. That season saw Jordan carry the football 202 times for 738 yards and six touchdowns. Those six touchdowns made up two thirds of his touchdown total during his K-State tenure.
Jordan’s numbers could have been much better, but he only appeared in five games in 1985 and only had 20 carries for 32 yards with one touchdown that season. He likely could have been a few spots higher on this list had he seen more playing time that season.
Tony Jordan ended up getting drafted in the fifth round by the Phoenix Cardinals in the 1988 NFL Draft and spent two seasons in the NFL.
