Lache Seastrunk Can Win Maxwell Or Heisman Award! By Super Scout Max Emfinger


The Maxwell Trophy Award Winner goes to the very best Football Player in College Football and 76 players have recently been announced to the Maxwell Trophy Award Watch List. Quarterback Johnny Manziel of Texas A&M is considered the overwhelming favorite, but South Carolina Defensive End Jadeveon Clowney; Alabama Quarterback A.J. McCarron; and Quarterback Teddy Bridgewater are other favorites.

Manziel, as a redshirt freshman, put-up some incredible numbers last year and became the front-runner to win the Heisman Trophy and then he won it. Manziel accounted for 43 touchdowns as he broke the SEC total offense record in one season that was set by former Heisman Trophy Winner Cam Newton with 4,600 yards. “Johnny Football” Manziel made a lot of SEC defenses look silly last season, and that’s not supposed to happen in the SEC. He’ll now be called Johnny “Heisman” Manziel.

The Heisman Trophy Award is also given to one of the best College Football players in College Football, but the Maxwell Trophy Award does not always go to the Heisman Trophy Award Winner.  The Heisman Trophy Award usually goes to a Quarterback or Running Back, but the Maxwell Trophy Award usually goes to a Skill Player, who is also at the Top of the Watch List.

Notre Dame Linebacker Manti Te’o was an exception in 2012 as he won the Maxwell Trophy Award over Manziel and all of the other Skill Football Players that were on the Watch List.

There are a few other great College Football Players on this incredible Maxwell Award Watch List that I really like and I feel are going to be Candidates for both the Heisman Trophy and the Maxwell Award.

One player that is a Potential #1 Draft Choice in the NFL Draft is Running Back Lache Seastrunk of Baylor. Seastrunk transferred to Baylor from Oregon and was a great Running Back on a great Baylor Passing Team, and he had a “Breakout Game” against Kansas State in the Tenth Game of the season as he helped the Bears to defeat the #1 BCS Team in the country.

In that unbelievable 52-24 Victory, Seastrunk rushed for 185-yards, and that included a beautiful 80-yard touchdown run right up the middle of the vaughted Kansas State Defense, in the UPSET GAME OF THE WEEK victory. The ironic thing about Seastrunk on this particular Saturday was that he was associated with both of the Undefeated BCS #1 Teams in the country on that day. Seastrunk transferred from Oregon to Baylor and he helped Baylor to beat Kansas State. Oregon also lost for the first time on that weekend.

Then in the Twelfth Game of the season, against Oklahoma State, Seastrunk rushed for 178-yards and a Touchdown on 16 carries and an amazing 11.1-yards per-carry, including a memorable, game-clinching 76-yard Touchdown Run, on National Television, in which he pulled a hamstring muscle and hobbled the final 40-yards, outrunning the Cowboys seconday defenders, in the fourth quarter to beat the #24 Ranked Cowboys.

Seastrunk had an electrifying sophomore season and is a junior All-American Candidate as he is a returning All Big-12 Player and the Big-12 Offensive Newcomer of The Year. A lot of people had forgotten that Seastrunk had transferred to Baylor until his big 80-yard Touchdown against the Wildcats, but the fact that he averaged 159.3-yards per game in his last four games of the season and 138.5-yard average in his final six games of the season cannot be overlooked.

In this incredible sophomore season, Seastrunk broke three Baylor records in his initial season,  including a single-season rushing record of 7.7 yards-per-rush; his 77.8 yards-per-game average ranks second on the Baylor career list. Seastrunk also enters the 2013 football season with a four game consecutive 100-yard rushing streak which is also a Baylor  school record for a single-season and career. Seastrunk was also Voted as the 2012 Holiday Bowl Offensive MVP and finished the 2012 season with 1,012 rushing yards.

Seastrunk was a High School All-American at nearby Temple, Texas High School. Seastrunk was also at our 2009 Super Elite Top Gun Camp in Florida and he was our Top Super Combine Freak with some incredible Measurables, including a 4.34 in the Forty; a Mind-Boggling 44.5 Vertical Jump; and a 137-inch Standing Broad Jump. His initial MEARS RATING is a Mind-Boggling 2,115 MEARS RATING which puts him into the Top Two or Three All-Time MEARS RATING history.

Side Note: In High School, Against Temple: As a Brownwood Junior Running Back, the Super Scout rushed for 183-yards on 21 carries and scored on a 44-yard touchdown. He also had a 45-yard catch out of the backfield. Then as a Senior, the Super Scout rushed for 99-yards on 10 carries and scored on a two-point conversion.

As a Baylor Sophomore, Seastrunk got off to a late start, after transferring, but he started the last six of 13 games in his first season with Baylor. As I have already stated, a lot of Football Fans around the country and in the Big-12 had forgotten about this Special transfer, but he burst onto the national scene in the final six games of season, earning Big 12 Offensive Newcomer of Year honors in both the Coaches Poll and Associated Press.

 Seastrunk scored seven Touchdowns to go with his 1,012 yards rushing on 131 carries, and nine receptions for 107-yards and another touchdown. He also rushed for 831-yards and scored six touchdowns in final six games, averaging 138.5 yard-per-game, as the Bears finished the season with a 5-1 record in those six games.

Seastrunk rushed for 136-yards on 19 carries and had a nice 7.2-yards per-rush in the Bears huge victory over Texas Tech in the eleventh game of the season and earned Big-12 Offensive Player of Week in the twelfth game against Oklahoma State on National Television. Then, he finished the season with 138-yards rushing and a 43-yard Touchdown on 16 carries and an 8.6 per-yards per carry average to earn Offensive MVP Honors in Holiday Bowl win over #17 Ranked UCLA.

Baylor Head Coach Art Briles
has a true Super Star in Seastrunk, but the Bears are a passing team and they are going to have to give him a chance to carry the football, if he is to have a legitimate chance to win either the Maxwell Award or the Heisman Trophy.

Seastrunk is a very confident player and he is probably the fastest and most versatile Running Back in the country. If Seastrunk can rush for 1,012-yards in six games with such Top BCS College Teams like Kansas, Oklahoma, Kansas State, Texas Tech, Oklahoma State, and UCLA, I’m positive that he can rush for 2,000-yards in 12 games if given the chance.

If Seastrunk gets 2,000-yards rushing, he has a chance for either or both the Maxwell and Heisman Trophy Awards. RGIII won the Heisman Trophy at Baylor is 2011 and the Bears had a 9-3 record so if Seastrunk gets the 2,000-yards rushing, Miracles could happen.


About maxemfingerrecruiting

My mission and goal is to search for that hidden high school football talent that has not been found yet. I then evaluate him and try to help him to get some publicity. In 2003, 2004, 2005. and 2006, I hosted my Annual 7on7 National Championship. My goal was to get great athletes to one area where I could evaluate them and then help them with college coaches. The only drawback was that college coaches wanted to see the hidden gems in a game-type highlight film and so the college coaches suggested to me that I host a real All-American Bowl Game so that they could view these talented players in a highlight film, playing against other talented players. It's noted that the NCAA doesn't allow the college coaches to attend All-American Games or practices and so the Game Film is a great tool for the college coaches. In 2005, I hosted my 1st Annual All-American Bowl Game. In nine games in nine years, my wife and I have helped 549 HS football players to get a scholarship that came to our first Bowl Game practice without a single scholarship offer. This also does not count over 1,000 players who we have helped that did not play in our game, including over 100 players in the 2010 Recruiting Season. My Super Elite Top Gun Camp idealogy, is of course, to get as many Top Football Players to a Top Gun Camp so that all of my coaches and I can evaluate them, rate them, rank them, and promote them. There will always be "Diamonds in the Rough" to be found. My First Annual Max Emfinger's Super Elite Top Gun Camp was in July of 2010. The Camp was amazing and loaded with unknown and known talent. Many of them were invited to play in our 2011 All-American Bowl Game Classic. In 2007, in my 3rd Annual All-American Bowl Game, a player by the name of Kareem Jackson came to our first Monday practice, without a single scholarship offer. Jackson decided to come out early and he became a #1 Draft Choice in the 2010 NFL Draft for the Houston Texans.
