Baylor’s Hasty Tabbed Big 12 Newcomer of the Week

IRVING, TX (KXXV) -

Baylor football running back JaMycal Hasty was named the Big 12 Newcomer of the Week, conference officials announced Monday.

Hasty, a redshirt freshman, had 14 carries for 105 yards and a touchdown on the ground and also caught two passes for 26 yards in Baylor’s 38-10 win over Rice. He got Baylor on the board in the second quarter with a 16-yard TD run up the middle to put BU in front 7-3.

Late in the game, the Longview, Texas, native pulled off his biggest run of the night as he took a handoff on third and five at the BU 34-yard line and raced 31 yards to the Rice 35 to help the Bears use up almost six minutes on a fourth quarter drive.

For the game, Hasty led all BU rushers as he notched his first-career 100-yard contest and averaged 7.5 yards per carry. For the season, he ranks third in the Big 12 with 79.0 yards per game on the ground.

This is the first season that the league has awarded a newcomer honor and Hasty is the first Bear to claim the accolade. He joins safety Orion Stewart, who won the league’s Defensive Player of the Week award last week, as BU players to be recognized by the conference in 2016.

The Bears will now host Oklahoma State in their Big 12 Conference opener Saturday at 6:30 p.m. on FOX.
