Darren McFadden is a famous football player for the Oakland Raiders. He was born on August 27, 1987 in North Little Rock, Arkansas. He went to Oak Grove High School in North Little Rock. He was in the Parade magazine as a 2004 All- American. He went to the University of Arkansas (U of A) for college. In his last 2 years at the U of A, he was a Heisman Trophy nominee but didn't win the Heisman either years. He was the first person ever in Arkansas history to be nominated for that award. But, he did win the Doak Walker award two years straight. He has a speed of 4.3, and he's not afraid of hitting or hurting his tacklers. Very few running backs accomplish throwing touch downs, but Darren McFadden makes it look like a piece of cake. Arkansas is the Natural State, and this unique football player is certainly a natural.
