K-State Football: Five Bold Predictions for the 2017 Season – Mike McCoy rushes for at least 1,000 Rushing Yards

A few weeks ago, I wrote an article on the running back depth that the Wildcats have this season. This list includes running back Mike McCoy, who should get plenty of carries and opportunities to make his name known.

I not only fully suspect McCoy to do well in his role, I predict him to succeed and overachieve. He has a great frame for a back at 6’2″ and 235 pounds. He has all the tools necessary to get the job done for the Cats.

Hopefully this skill set translates and we can look forward to many big plays on the ground. Something else that will help him is his stout offensive line. They’re big and have the experience to open up lanes for McCoy to take advantage of.

Let’s say a healthy stat line by the end of the year for Mr. McCoy is 1,070 yards and 11 touchdowns. If he can do that, all of Manhattan will be pumping their fists watching this kid play.
