The Northwestern Wildcats had an improbable 2015 season. The team started the year 5-0 and had one of the best defenses in the country at that point in the year. They won their last five games and finished the regular season 10-2, a terrific year that not many people expected.
While their defense carried the team most of the year and running back Justin Jackson was their biggest offensive weapon, freshman quarterback Clayton Thorson had a pretty decent year. He threw for 1,465 yards and seven touchdowns against seven interceptions. He certainly has some work to do, but he is still a young guy and will grow exponentially.
His name is probably pretty recognizable to Northwestern students, but apparently his face isn’t. He went around campus asking questions focused around him and none of the students got it until the big reveal.
The best thing is that he asked the students who their favorite player is.
The answer was pretty clear with “the ball carrier” Jackson being the consensus.
