Corey Coleman is one of the top players in college football this season and the Baylor Bears are lucky to have him in their offense. Many have come out and said that he is the best player in the game this season which reflects with the Heisman watch rankings that he has been included in for quite some time.
Coleman also has a drive to win that is unmatched by any other receiver in the nation and he made that clear when talking to the media recently.
“I don’t like losing,” Coleman says. “If you get tackled, you pretty much lost. Especially if it’s the first guy.”
Setting that type of goal for a wide receiver is impressive. There are quite a few receivers that will go down without even taking a hit simply to avoid the hit. Coleman is not that type of guy and wants to make plays after the catch which usually makes college receivers turn into star NFL receivers.
Throughout the 2015 season, Coleman has caught 58 passes for 1,178 yards and 20 touchdowns.
Finding a more dynamic playmaker than him in the nation isn’t an easy task. There are no defensive backs that can take him one-on-one and he can shred through a zone defense.
At 5-foot-11, he isn’t a terribly huge target, but his speed and athleticism separates him from the rest.
It will be very intriguing to see what kind of numbers Coleman has at the end of the season. He could make a run at the Heisman Trophy this season, although beating out Leonard Fournette, Derrick Henry and Trevone Boykin isn’t going to be an easy task.
