Trung Canidate couldn’t be caught on the field, only in the record books.
The former Arizona Wildcat watched in person as Ka’Deem Carey broke his Arizona Wildcats single-season rushing record last year.
He’s hoping to be able to get back to Tucson this week as Carey aims at an even bigger mark — the school career rushing record.
“I met him last year when he was breaking another one of my records,” Canidate told TucsonCitizen.com on Monday. “He’s well-built and he runs vicious.
“I knew he was going to break the (career) record, if he stayed healthy. On my end, it was already gone. I already knew it was over. I made sure I got my second seat ready.
“It’s a soft hit right in my ribs, but, you know, records are made to be broken.”
Carey needs 118 yards against fifth-ranked Oregon on Saturday at Arizona Stadium to pass Canidate, who raced for 3,824 yards from 1996 to 1999.
