Christian McAffrey is one of the best football players in the nation. Unfortunately, the Stanford Cardinal sophomore running back does not get the attention he deserves from the national media.
That doesn’t mean he is letting that slow him down from being one of the most productive players in the school’s history, however.
In fact, McAffrey is having one of the most productive single-seasons the school has ever seen.
Earlier this month, McAffrey broke Stanford’s all-time single-season record for all-purpose yards. In Saturday’s win over the California Golden Bears, he added to that mark in a big way.
McAffrey rushed for 192 yards, caught a pass for 49 yards and added 148 yards in the return game with two total touchdowns.
That means McAffrey finished the game with 389 all-purpose yards, breaking the previous single-game mark of 379 which was set 25 years ago, also against Cal, by one of his dad’s teammates, running back Glyn Milburn.
It’s safe to safe that if McAffrey is not invited to New York for the Heisman ceremony this season that he will enter next season as one of the favorites.
The Cardinal topped Cal, 35-22, and will finish their regular season next weekend against the Notre Dame Fighting Irish.
