Baylor Running Back Lache Seastrunk Turns Pro Waco
Baylor junior running back Lache Seastrunk will forgo his final year of eligibility and enter the NFL draft. Seastrunk ran for over 1,000 yards for the second consecutive season, and helped the Bears win the Big 12 Championships for the first time in program history. In the Fiesta Bowl, Seastrunk carried the ball 17 times for 117 yards, an average of 6.9 yards per rush.
On the season, the Temple native ran for 1,294 yards on 175 carries, an average of 7.39 yards per carry. In 2012, Seastrunk rushed for 1,031 yards on 131 carries which works out to an average of 7.7 per carry.
Baylor Head Coach Art Briles in a statement said "I appreciate the dedication and energy that Lache brought to this football team. He would do anything that he was asked to do both on and off the field, and that translated to him being the first two-time 1,000 yard rusher at Baylor. We wish Lache nothing but the best, he told me his plans are to come back and eventually get his degree from Baylor University, that's what makes us proud. He'll always be a Baylor Bear."
