It took South Carolina tailback Jarvis Giles, a Gaither grad, just three college games to do something many running backs never accomplish.

In Saturday’s 38-16 win over Florida Atlantic, he topped 100 rushing yards.

On only 11carries, the speedy Giles, once a track star back in Tampa gained 113 yards and scored one touchdown (his first in college). One of his rush attempts covered 38 yards.

"We were hoping Jarvis could make long runs, and he did pop a few out of there," USC coach Steve Spurrier said after the game.

The State, the daily newspaper in Columbia, S.C., has a nice profile about Giles today. It’s a good read, so check it out.
