Kansas State coach Bill Snyder was asked several questions about senior quarterback Jake Waters and his career-high 138 rushing yards is 20 attempts against Iowa State. Waters is better known as a passer.
Was Snyder surprised by that running production?
“I don’t think we ever felt like he couldn’t run the ball,” Snyder said. “ I have known all along, and everyone in here in our program has known, that he has the capacity to do both. It wasn’t a surprise to us. It is a surprise to me that it is a surprise to anyone else.”
Waters said he didn’t realize how well he ran with the ball until he saw the stat sheet. He was reminded the following morning.
Never miss a local story.
“I had never really carried the ball that much,” Waters said. “I was pretty sore, but it was definitely worth it.”
