02/21/2015 Highlights: MVB vs. Ohio State
Jahwan Edwards stands poised to take his first steps onto an NFL Field. This week, he will shine at the NFL Combine, but his football legacy wasn't always cemented.
Ball State football began to shake in 2011.
Coming off a 4-8 season the year before, the program welcomed a new football coach -- Pete Lembo -- in hopes of revitalizing a team and community looking for more success.
Yet, the program wasn’t done bringing in young, game-changing talent.
The Cardinals recruited in a 5-foot-10, 219-pound running back named Jahwan Edwards the very same year. He was small, yet powerful and had a passion for football few could ever come close to matching.
At Ball State, Edwards was doubted at the beginning of his career, but his commitment and passion for the game wasn’t. With help from a talented coaching staff, Edwards was molded into a superstar and it showed on the gridiron the moment he took the field.
In four years, Edwards has rushed his way into the Ball State record books. He’s become the program’s all-time leading rusher with 4,558 career rushing yards. He’s also tallied 51 career touchdowns which places not only first all-time at Ball State, but fifth all-time in Mid-American Conference history.
But what name will be printed in those record books? It’s a tougher question to answer than one might think.
“When I first started getting publicity, I was tired of Jahwan,” Edwards explained. “I wanted an alias a little bit. A friend of mine actually came up with the name. I forget the actual conversation, but I was like ‘Quake, yea I’m going with that [and] roll with it.”
With his Ball State career officially over, Quake has his eyes looking towards the next level – the National Football League. The NFL invited him to perform this week at the Combine.
“Hard work, dedication, and belief,” Edwards said. “Hopefully, I just get that opportunity. I got the right people in my corner.”
