Lache Seastrunk put up one of the best sophomore seasons the Baylor Bears have ever seen in last years 2012 season. Seastrunk is a 5-foot-10, 205-pound junior from Temple, Texas. Seastrunk was near the top of almost all of the NCAA’s rushing leader boards. After rushing for just 181 yards through the first seven games of the 2012 season, Seastrunk went on an absolute tear. He ended up averaging 138.5 yards per game in the last six games with four straight 100-yard games to end the year on top, including a 185-yard performance against conference rival Kansas State. The Texas native ended the season with 1012-yards rushing with seven touchdowns. After finally cracking the starting line up late last season, Seastrunk will be looking for another 1000 yard season as well as being atop the Big 12 in rushing if not being able to make a run for the most yards rushing in the NCAA.

Seastrunk had trouble cracking the starting lineup last season due to his youth, but this year he has been publicly named the starting Running Back in bear country. He has had trouble with schoolwork and behavior in the past, but I think Seastrunk has gotten his act together and has finally matured enough to the point where he is ready for the national spotlight. Seastrunk will he get his fare share of carries in Baylor’s spread offense and he will put up huge numbers in route to being the Big 12’s best Running Back.
