Travis Eti­enne, RB, Clem­son:

The Island Packet - - Sports -

We all know a quar­ter­back is al­most a lock to the win the Heis­man and that quar­ter­back is prob­a­bly Tua Tagoav­iloa of Alabama. Ok­la­homa’s Kyler Mur­ray, West Vir­ginia’s Will Grier and Hask­ins could still have a say, too.

Eti­enne is the one run­ning back left who might be able to break into the field. His big­gest is­sue is touches. The sopho­more is av­er­ag­ing just un­der 13 car­ries per game, but 8.6 yards per carry with 15 touch­downs. If Bos­ton Col­lege can mount a chal­lenge against the Tigers in prime time, maybe they will give Eti­enne a few more mean­ing­ful touches and the chance to di­rect some Heis­man at­ten­tion his way.
