After a buddy and I did some research earlier tonight...Last white 1,000 yard rusher was Craig James of New England. In 1985, he rushed for 1227 yards, but did not lead the league. We thought perhaps Riggins, Csonka or Van Eeghan might have been the last white RB to lead the league, but nope. It goes to Dickie Post, who led the AFL in 1969 with 873 yards, and played for the Chargers.
