Bennett's TJC career comes to an end


TYLER — Former Rusk High School phenom Chaston Bennett, recently finished his sophomore season at Tyler Junior College with 1,438 yards rushing.

He averaged nearly 131 yards a game and 7.0 yards per carry.

Bennett also scored 24 touchdowns this season for an Apache team that finished 8-3.

TJC officials learned Tuesday that despite the team's outstanding record the Apaches would not be going bowling this year and as a result of that TJC's season is over.

There are two fewer NJCAA bowl games this year than there was last year, with a handful of top 20 teams being excluded from the post season equation.
