Oklahoma State alumnus Chris Carson reached the 1,000-yard mark with a 116-yard, two-touchdown performance against the Kansas City Chiefs during Seattle’s 38-31 victory on Sunday night.

The game put Carson at 1,029 yards for 2018, making him the first Seattle running back to reach the 1K mark since 2014.

He joins the likes of Ezekiel Elliott, Todd Gurley and Saquon Barkley as one of only seven backs in the league who have reached four-digit rushing totals.

Here is what social media had to say about the second-year player’s incredible game and season:

Carson is the first OSU alumnus to reach 1,000 yards in a season since Tatum Bell did it in 2006 with the Denver Broncos. Additionally, the Tulsa World‘s Mark Cooper pointed out that Carson’s running total is the most productive rushing season for an OSU product since Barry Sanders’ 1,491-yard performance in 1998.

With last night’s victory, Carson and the Seahawks have clinched a spot in the postseason. They now prepare for their regular season finale against Arizona next Sunday at 3:25 p.m.
