Among players with more than one 70+ yard run, Devine has the third-best ratio, averaging a 70+ yard rush every 70.4 attempts.  Louisiana Tech WR Phillip Rivas has the top ratio, with a 70+ yard run every 24.0 attempts, followed by Florida RB Chris Rainey with a 70+ yard run every 38.7 attempts.  However, Rivas and Rainey do not have nearly as many rushing attempts as Devine.

Besides their ability to break long runs, Devine, Rivas, and Rainey have another thing in common — their size.  Devine is 5’8″ and weighs 176 pounds, Rivas is 5’8″ and weighs 175 pounds, and Rainey is 5’9″ and weighs 175 pounds.
