Big Man on Campus: John Hubert

8 Oct

Not more than a month again, I wrote an article for the Associated Press about how running back John Hubert does so much to get Kansas State down the field but rarely gets to be the one to take the ball into the end zone.

It appears coach Bill Snyder has set out to prove that story incorrect.

Through five games, Hubert now has eight touchdowns, including four on Saturday in the Wildcats’ rout of Kansas.

In 2011, Hubert scored just three times despite racking up 970 yards of offense.

With more than twice as many touchdowns as last year , Hubert is on track to blow away his previous yardage numbers as well. He has already amassed 527 yards on 76 attempts, averaging 105.4 yards per game and 6.9 yards per carry.

Currently, the 5-foot-7 Hubert is among the top 30 running backs in the country in yards, yards per carry and touchdowns.

He does not get nearly as much press as quarterback Collin Klein, but with his running style and his blocking ability, he is definitely an integral part of the Wildcats’ offense.
