Boise State’s Ajayi Is Becoming an NFL Superstar
The rest of the football universe is discovering now what Boise State fans have known for awhile now. Jay Ajayi is awesome.
It's hard to have a 100-yard game as a running back in the NFL, and as a Miami Dolphin this season, Ajayi has had two straight games with over 200 yards. He's amazing!
Ajayi ran for 204 yards against the Steelers, and 214 yards against the Bills in the past two weeks. The Miami Herald says he could make it three straight games over 200 yards this weekend against. That would put him in some elite company, in a category with the most legendary running backs in NFL History.
We loved watching him at Boise State and we knew he was a big deal for the Broncos, but when he entered the NFL draft he didn't get as much attention as some of the other flashy players at schools in the eastern half of the US. Ajayi was drafted by the Dolphins in the fifth round of the 2015 NFL Draft, so he's got some experience under his belt now, and fans across the county are starting to realize he's the real deal.
The Seahawks beat the Dolphins back on September 11th, and with that game out of the way maybe now we can spend the rest of the season cheering for the Dolphins. Or Jay Ajayi anyway.
It's awesome to see this Boise State star keep it going on the national stage. It's just a different shade of blue now.
