Baylor Bears running back Lache Seastrunk says he plans on winning the Heisman trophy in 2013 (Credit: AP Photo) Not many college football fans know his name, but Baylor running back Lache Seatrunk believes all of that will change next season. Seatrunk told The Sporting News this week that he plans on winning the 2013 Heisman. “I’m going to win the Heisman. I’m going to win it in 2013. If I don’t, I’m going to get very close. I’m shooting for that goal. I will gladly say it.” The Sophomore running back has had an up and down season but has been playing better as of late. In Baylor’s first seven games this season, Seastrunk averaged fewer than 26 yards a game, but he emerged as a star in November. In Baylor’s final five games, he averaged 138.6 yards and ran for five touchdowns, including three against Oklahoma. Seastrunk, playing in his first season of college football, also caught five passes for 91 yards and a touchdown Nov. 1 against Kansas, but his most eye-opening performance came Nov. 17 against Kansas State. “I feel like there’s no back who can do what I do,” he told the Sporting News. “I know I’m the fastest back in the country. I know I’m the best back in the country. Nobody’s going to work harder.” Seastrunk will be a junior next season after redshirting at Oregon in 2010 and sitting out a season after he transferred to Baylor. If Seatrunk can win the 2013 Heisman, he will be the second Baylor Bear to win the award after Robert Griffin III won the trophy in 2011. Similar to Griffin III, Seatrunk would essentially come out of nowhere if he won the Heisman next season. Seatrunk will definitely need to work hard in the off-season if he plans on hoisting the Heisman in 2013. His stats, currently 874 yards and 6 touchdowns, need to be improved to even be considered in the Heisman race. This year’s top three finalists were all quarterbacks. The last running back to win the Heisman was Mark Ingram in 2009. During the 2009 season, Ingram had 1,658 and 17 touchdowns (20 total). Seatrunk will have to have a bunch of yards if he plans on even heading to New York in 2013. The post Baylor RB Lache Seatrunk ” I will win the Heisman in 2013″ appeared first on DOWN & DISTANCE.
