For the first time in 24 years, Iowa State has the Big 12 Offensive Player of the Year in running back Breece Hall.
Hall joins former Iowa State running back Troy Davis as the second Cyclones player to win the award.
Breece Hall finished the season with 222 carries for 1,357 rushing yards, good for over six yards per carry, along with 17 touchdown runs. He also had 18 receptions for 144 yards, with two touchdown receptions.
Hall’s 135.7 rushing yards per game were 30 more yards per game than anyone else in the conference, ahead of West Virginia running back Leddie Brown. His 6.1 yards per carry were more than anyone in the conference with at least 77 carries on the season. And his 17 rushing touchdowns were seven more than TCU QB Max Duggan, who was second with 10 rushing scores on the season.
Breece Hall scored 114 points on the season, which was 26 more than anyone else in the conference. Oklahoma kicker Gabe Brkic.
Hall has consistently improved during his time with the Iowa State Cyclones. And if you haven’t we wrote this piece two months ago titled, “Wake Up America: Meet Breece Hall“.
Hall is a Wichita, Kansas native and was a former three-star recruit by Rivals (four-star by 247Sports) who picked the Cyclones over Iowa, Baylor, Kansas State, Michigan, Nebraska and Tennessee.
Now, Hall and the Cyclones get ready for this weekend’s Big 12 Championship Game when they face the Oklahoma Sooners at 11:00 a.m. on ABC. Iowa State is trying to win its first conference title in football since 1912.
