Barry Quentin Word (born July 17, 1964 in Long Island, Virginia) is a former American football running back for the National Football League. Word played college football at the University of Virginia. In 1985, he ran for 1224 yards, which is currently the fifth largest rushing yards total put up by a Virginia Cavaliers running back. Also in 1985, Word was the Atlantic Coast Conference player of the year. He was drafted in the 3rd round, 62nd overall, by the New Orleans Saints. In 1987, he and two other Virginia athletes were indicted on cocaine distribution charges. Word pleaded guilty, and his willingness to cooperate and his limited involvement in the case meant he only received 5 months in prison.
