Mykel "Boom Boom" Benson is one of the all-time great rushers in the history of the Arena Football League and this Saturday's game could be a very special one for Boom Boom. Benson is only ten yards away from taking over the second spot on the AFL all-time rushing leader's list.

Benson has 1,695 All Time yards, 10 yards behind former AFL QB Bernard Morris and a long way to go to catch fellow Full Back Derrick Ross and his 3,245 career rushing yards. Boom Boom is a show favorite with his downhill running style and nose for the endzone. So far this season Benson's 60 rushing yards is second to Washington Valor QB Arvell Nelson's 115 yards and his three rushing TD's are tied for fourth in the league. Does Benson worry about stats and how much have injuries to the Empire's offensive line hurt his production this year? Listen below for Mykel "Boom Boom" Benson's full interview.
