Mason Rudolph, Heisman Trophy?

Calvin wrote the following on why OSU’s Mason Rudolph should win the 2018 Heisman trophy. Check out for more, including A. Suave Francisco’s reasons as to why Baker Mayfield can and can’t win this years Heisman trophy award.  

In 2016 Mason Rudolph came into the season as a dark horse candidate for the Heisman trophy. After a sloppy game against Central Michigan Rudolph’s hopes were dashed. The refs became the story of the Oklahoma State season until Bedlam where again Rudolph underperformed playing against the 2016 Big 12 champion. Then to end the season, Rudolph showed us a glimpse of what kind of quarterback he can be in the Alamo Bowl victory against a 10-win PAC-12 team.
So a year later heading into the 2017 season what are Mason Rudolph’s Heisman hopes, well much better than last year’s chances. Rudolph comes into 2017 with a sophomore running back who rushed for more than 1,000 years in his freshman year in Justice Hill. Rudolph also has the wideouts to truly make him in the running for a 5,000 yard passing year, especially in the pass happy BIG-12. tumblr_nb7duoLirb1rmkxndo1_500

James Washington returns to the team for his senior year and after he caught 10 touchdowns and caught 71 passes for 1,380 yards, Washington is looking to keep his name in the discussion to be a first round draft pick. The Rudolph to Washington fade route will only be better in the final year of the All-BIG-12 duos collegiate career.

Rudolph also has Jalen McCleskey returning to the team who finished the year with more than 800 yards receiving and Chris Lacy who averaged 15.8 yards receiving on just 31 catches.
