TEMPLE, Texas A minute or two is all it takes.

During that brief span, it becomes obvious the player on the video is something special.

Lache Seastrunk (pronounced Lake), a 5-foot-10, 180-pound running back at Temple High School, is so special he'll likely become an Internet legend on par with Noel Devine when his highlights start circulating on the Web.

Seastrunk averaged nearly 12 yards per carry while rushing for 1,532 yards on 129 attempts last season. He scored 19 touchdowns, with 11 of those covering at least 45 yards. Those numbers aren't by-products of a dominant team, padded stats or a wide-open offense. Temple, which runs the Wing T, was 7-4 last season. Seastrunk had 10 or fewer carries in five games and never had more than 21. Speed undoubtedly is his greatest asset. He ran an automatic-timed 10.37 in the 100-meter dash this spring.

And he's only a sophomore.

At about 2:06, that's just plain ridiculous.

When this kid actually figures out whats happening on the field he's going to be SICK! Right now he's just running and being very successfull. Hopefully he can keep his head straight and stay out of trouble (not that he has). I look forward to seeing more clips.
