OU Blitzes QB Mayfield for the Heisman

OU Blitzes QB Mayfield for the Heisman

 

111415-CFB-Oklahoma-quarterback-Baker-Mayfield-PI.vadapt.955.high.7The Baker Mayfield for Heisman campaign is picking up a full head of steam.  Mayfield’s  “Heisman moment” came in the 4th quarter with OU up three, needing a score to ice Baylor.  Mayfield scrambled around for what seemed to be an eternity before finding Dimitri  Flowers in the end zone for a seven-yard touchdown.  After throwing three touchdowns and one interception over the 6th ranked Bears, Oklahoma’s sports information department is making sure you know how Mayfield stacks up to the last 13 Heisman quarterbacks.

Through his first ten games, Mayfield has thrown more touchdown passes than Johnny Manziel, Jamis Winston, Cam Newton and Matt Leinart did in their first ten games in the years they won.  He’s getting picked off less than Carson Palmer, Sam Bradford and Jason White.  Mayfield is tied for 4th in yards-per-game while ranking 6th in total touchdowns.

More importantly Mayfield has the respect of his team and coaches and Bob Stoops isn’t shying away from the Mayfield for Heisman chat. “I think it’s fair that he’s in that talk with other great players around the country because he’s earned it with numbers and success on the field. When you compare his numbers with other past Heisman Trophy quarterbacks he’s right there.”

Mayfield is the ultimate team player
