Guests need to watch their step when entering the bedroom of Hereford running back Lonnie Liggins. The Bulls' leading rusher wouldn't want anyone tripping over his shoes. With a sneaker collection that includes Air Jordans, Air Force Ones and practically every other "Air," the soft-spoken senior with a knack for making big plays could give Foot Locker a run for its money should he decide to open up shop. Not that he'd want to get rid of any of his prized possessions. "Shoes are kind of my thing," Liggins said of his collection, which formed a multicolored perimeter around his bedroom floor, making for easy access to them.
