Chuckie Keeton’s Heisman campaign is underway, too

We saw what Northern Illinois did for Jordan Lynch and now Utah State has started a Heisman campaign for its talented quarterback, Chuckie Keeton.

The Aggies took a page from the playbook of Baylor’s 2011 Heisman campaign and sent out an autographed player trading card of Keeton in the mail yesterday:

I thought the RG3 player card was an understated and classy way to promote him and I feel the same way now about this endeavor on Keeton’s behalf.

Keeton, a junior, is one of the most underrated players in the country. He led the Aggies to an 11-2 record last season while throwing for 3,373 yards and 27 touchdowns and rushing for 619 yards and eight scores.

It’s going to be an uphill slog to get to New York — as it always is for players from non-BCS conferences — but this campaign is a good way to remind people of his talents and help put the school’s brand in the national conversation.

Well done. We look forward to seeing how his campaign progresses.

    Kellen Moore has led the Boise State Broncos in Undefeated seasons and is a better qb and still didn’t get the Heisman… keep dreaming Aggies
