CHARLOTTESVILLE, Va. (AP) - Kevin Parks flashes a sly smile hoping it will answer the question.
The Virginia tailback and North Carolina native is going home with a bit of an attitude this weekend when the struggling Cavaliers face a surprising Duke team.
The 5-foot-8 Parks played high school ball less than two hours from the Research Triangle, and said coaches in his home state told him he was too small to play football at the major college level.
Parks leads the Cavaliers (2-3, 0-0 Atlantic Coast Conference) in rushing with 272 yards, including a 49-yard burst, and has scored two touchdowns, giving him 11 in 18 college games. He's also caught 12 passes for 95 yards heading into the game against the Blue Devils (4-1, 1-0).
