3. Trestan Ebner is Baylor’s secret weapon

Whether it was running the ball, catching the ball, or returning a kickoff, Trestan Ebner did it all for Baylor. He got a rushing touchdown in the first quarter and then scored a receiving touchdown in the second quarter. He topped it off with two kickoff return touchdowns in the second half.

It didn’t matter what Kansas threw at him defensively, Ebner was able to make play after play after play. He finished the contest with 14 total touches, 272 all-purpose yards and four total touchdowns.

Ebner is well on his way to becoming a potential player of the week award winner. He also sent the Big 12 conference a strong message that he is a dangerous weapon that is not to be messed with.

What makes Ebner so good is his track-like speed. No matter what position a player plays in football, speed always kills. Having that kind of speed on your offense and special teams only ensure that Baylor can win on all three phases of the game.
