To the surprise of absolutely no one, Baker Mayfield is being praised for his leadership at the Heisman ceremony.
In a roundtable discussion with Lee Corso, ESPN analyst Kirk Herbstreit said, “I don’t think I’ve ever seen a player where the defense, coaches, offense, seem to feed off of his energy, so we can talk about his stats all night…watch how he wills his team.”
That’s very high praise from a guy like Herbstreit, who has seen his fair share of leaders come through college football. It’s a true statement from Herbstreit, no one does as much for his team as Baker Mayfield. The quarterback has been the beating heart of his team the entire year, and he’ll likely be awarded for his efforts with the Heisman trophy.
Next up for Mayfield is the Georgia Bulldogs, who boast the toughest defense he’ll face all year. There’s little doubt that Mayfield is the man for the job, though, and the Sooners will have a good chance at going to the national championship.
