The Heisman frontrunner is returns after his legen........(wait for it).......dary season.

(UPDATE 5:02 pm 6/26/15: Thanks for bearing with me, y'all! Stuff happened. It's fixed. #Landes4Heisman. Carry on.)

12 Reasons to Vote #Landes4Heisman This Fall

1. He's a true athlete.


Landes played catcher for the 2012 and 2013 Baylor Baseball teams prior to switching back to his one true love: football. He had a .930 fielding percentage, and well as making 31 putouts and 9 assists in 15 games (4 starting).


That is perfect critical fumble recovery form, people.

3. 247 sleeps.

(There's a hyperlink in that heading, I promise..tricksy fonts are tricksy!) In their defense, however, Landes didn't truly begin to show he was serious about his Heisman campaign until mid-October, so....I guess we can let that slide....this time....

4. He works hard.

This guy's always got his eye on the prize.

5. No, really.

6. Oh, you thought I was kidding about his work ethic and determination?

Well, I wasn't. Championships (and Heismans) are won in the offseason.

7. But despite working hard...

8. ...and staying hungry...



9. ...and above all else, keeping his focus...

10. ...Landes knows that sometimes, you've gotta please the people.

11. And laughter, after all, is better than fame.

12. But Katy Perry is even better than that.


Thanks for sharing your 2014 Heisman race with us! And, you know, your pearls of wisdom about laughter and hard work and never losing focus.


(PS. I'm baaaaaack! Leave me comments as to who y'all want to see in this space next!)
