Baylor’s Lache Seastrunk pulls his hamstring at about midfield, still scores a touchdown

We all knew Baylor running back Lache Seastrunk was fast, but he took that to another level with a 76-yard touchdown run on Oklahoma State.

Seastrunk pulled his hamstring when he was just past midfield, and the Cowboys still couldn't catch him.

Just after Seastrunk passed the 50-yard line, he grabbed at his left hamstring. But he kept running. He stumbled at about the 10 and lunged into the end zone. And the whole time Seastrunk was dragging his bad leg along, Oklahoma State couldn't catch him. Cowboys coaches will have to wonder, when they watch film of this play, why none of their defenders could catch a running back who was limping and hobbling for the final two-thirds of a long touchdown run.

What an effort by Seastrunk. That touchdown was pretty big, considering Baylor won 41-34. Seastrunk rushed for 499 yards in his last three games, against Kansas State, Texas Tech and Oklahoma State. When we start figuring out which players to watch in 2013, this run will be tough to forget.
