Achievements: The 6-foot, 221-pound junior at Patterson High rushed for 2,377 yards and 34 touchdowns on 256 carries last season and was named National Sophomore of the Year by EA Sports. He's on pace to break the state records for yardage and TDs midway through his senior season. Football runs in the family: His uncle Dalton was a running back for the Saints for eight years and his cousin Ike, a wide receiver with the Buccaneers, finished his 12th NFL season in 2008.
Next step: Kenny has offers from LSU, Alabama, Minnesota, Tennessee and Texas A&M on the table. For now, he's concentrating on ways he can improve--especially as a receiver out of the backfield.
