Football, 1974-77

Evans holds the distinction of being the FSU football's first player to attain first-team All-America honors. The 1976 Ferris MVP was selected to the NAIA Division II team and was a Kodak NCAA Division III All-American after leading all runners in total yards rushing. His 1976 total of 1,509-yards on the ground was fourth best in the nation and tops among all NAIA and NCAA-III rushers. Evans also earned NAIA All-America First-Team recognition as a senior in the 1977 campaign. He currently ranks second all-time in rushing with 3,546 career yards on 680 attempts (5.2 ypc.) and 22 touchdowns and is 10th in scoring with 148 career points on 24 touchdowns along with a pair of two-point conversions.

A native of Inkster, Evans led the Bulldogs in rushing three consecutive seasons with 992 yards in 1975 and 1,009 yards in 1977. The three-time All-GLIAC (1975-77) performer presently holds or shares school records for most 200-yard rushing games in a season (three in 1976) and most 150-yard rushing games in a season (six in 1976). The Taylor Center grad tied two records with a 95-yard touchdown run in the 1977 season-finale at St. Norbert. Evans, who lives in Inkster, works in mental health management for Metro Emergency Services and has one son.
