Newsome moving up the UConn career charts

Time for my weekly "where Arkeel Newsome stands" update.

The former Ansonia High star needs 38 yards to move past Joe Markus and into sole possession of second place in all-purpose yards in UConn history.

Here's the updated list

Category                      Yards     Rank Next up   
All-purpose                  4,776  (3rd)      Joe Markus 4,813
Yards from scrimmage 3,153 (6th)       Lyle McCombs 3,158
Rushing yards               1,904 (13th)    Tory Taylor 1905
Touchdowns                  22     (14th)     John Fitzsimmons 23
Receptions                    102   (17th)     Keith Hugger 103
Receiving yards            1249 (20th)    Ken Miller 1,313

Also, Bryant Shirreffs needs 46 yards to join Pete Petrillo and Ken Sweitzer to become the third UConn quarterback with 1,000 career rushing yards. Junior Joseph has 271 career tackles which is tied for 21st in program history. With four tackles today, he will pass Sio Moore and Rob Belucore to move into 19th place. Also, Joseph is part of a senior class with a combined 97.5 tackles for loss. The only other classes with at least 100 tackles for loss are 2012 and 2004.

There are some more tidbits in my preview capsule
