DENVER, Colo. -- Colorado State running back Kapri Bibbs added another honor on Tuesday after his historic season for the Rams. Bibbs was named the College Male Athlete of the Year by the Colorado Sports Hall of Fame.

In his lone season in Fort Collins, Bibbs rushed for a school record 1,741 yards, the fifth-most nationally, and a NCAA-leading 31 touchdowns. He is one of four NCAA athletes to score 30 rushing touchdowns in a single season, joining Barry Sanders (Oklahoma State - 1988), Montee Ball (Wisconsin - 2011) and Keenan Reynolds (Navy - 2013).

Bibbs, who was named second-team All-America by the Walter Camp Foundation, helped lead the Rams to an 8-6 season, including a victory over Washington State in the 2013 Gildan New Mexico Bowl.

In what would turn out to be Bibbs’ final game for the green and gold, he rushed for 169 yards and three touchdowns. This was his eighth game with at least three rushing touchdowns, tying Barry Sanders’ NCAA record for the most games with at least three rushing touchdowns.

The last CSU athlete to win this honor was Katelyn Steffan in 2011.

Denver Broncos quarterback Peyton Manning and world-champion skier Mikaela Shiffrin were selected as Colorado’s Athletes of the Year.

Bibbs, along with Manning, Shiffrin and the 2014 inductees into the Colorado Sports Hall of Fame, will be honored at the induction banquet on April 17 at the Denver Marriott City Center. For ticket information click here.
