Darnell Woolfolk has his place in the top 10 of Army’s all-time rushing and touchdowns leaders.
A few years after his playing days, Woolfolk is still unaware of where he stands statistically in academy football history. The only Army players to score more touchdowns than Woolfolk’s 37 were Trent Steelman (45) and Heisman Trophy winner Glenn Davis (43).
Woolfolk was never one for personal achievements. The former fullback was all about the team and bringing winning football back to West Point. Woolfolk and Army won 29 games from his sophomore to senior seasons in one of the most impressive Army three-year runs.
There are plenty of team accomplishments and memories that Woolfolk holds close today.
Woolfolk talks about taking the field for 2016 Army-Navy game with teammate Brandon Jackson on the team’s mind and ending the 14-game losing streak to the Midshipmen, quieting a sold-out crowd at Oklahoma his senior season, coaching current Army slotback Tyrell Robinson at Army Prep and working toward a future as a strength and conditioning coach.
Speaking of playing before sold-out road crowds, Woolfolk believes Army has “more than enough talent” to pull out a win at Wisconsin Saturday.
“I think a lot of times going into these big games, the opponents kind of underestimate us and it bites them in the butt early and they are clawing and fighting,” Woolfolk said. “I hope Wisconsin is ready because we sure will be.”
