A 4-Foot-9 Running Back Got to Play for Rice University on Saturday

Hooray for Short People!

Remember the end of "Rudy", where he gets to play, and records a tackle?  Well, the same sort of thing happened on Saturday when Rice University put in a running back named Jayson Carter for one play.

And in some ways it's more impressive, because Rudy Ruettiger was 5-foot-6. Hey, that's how tall I am!

Jayson is only 4-foot-9.  Rice was up 45-7 in the fourth quarter, so it wasn't actually risky.  But he did manage to gain MAYBE a yard.

And when you see the footage of him next to the other players, he looks TINY.
