    RB Cierre Wood: 2012-2013 Heisman, Maxwell, Doak Walker, Walter Camp winner

    The Numbers:
    1452 rush yards (8th in NCAA)
    19 rush TDs (2nd in NCAA)
    121.0 yards per game (8th in NCAA)
    377 yards after contact (1st in NCAA)
    44 broken tackles (4th in NCAA)
    Lead all NCAA RBs in receiving yards (484) and receiving TDs (6)

    The Lore:
    At the beginning of the season, the Notre Dame Fighting Irish had no identity. A cesspool of talent with no direction, you could hardly game plan and know what to expect from them offensively. If there was one constant though, it was Cierre Wood. The all-around speedster from California had spent three years with the Irish already and he knew what was expected in South Bend. Emerging as a starter for the first time last year, Wood compiled 1102 yards on 217 carries with 9 TDs. A fine season by any means, but nothing compared to his exciting 2012-2013 campaign.

    Mazel Tov to Mr. Wood on his fine accomplishments. Was glad I didn't have to play him this year...and ruin his Heisman campaign
