Oklahoma State's Mason Rudolph is ESPN's second choice in the Big 12 Conference for a Heisman Trophy candidate. The OSU junior has impressed from his senior season at Rock Hill High School leading the Trojans to an unbeaten season and South Carolina Class 4A Division II state championship. In that game Rudolph completed 40-of-57 passes for 488 yards and eight touchdowns and just one interception. In three seasons as the quarterback at Rock Hill he threw for over 10,000 yards. His junior and senior seasons resulted in 105 touchdown passes and just 15 interceptions.
At Oklahoma State, he showed no fear starting his first game in the rain against sixth-ranked Baylor and broke the record for most passing yards in a first start for a Cowboy quarterback with 281 yards. The next game he engineered an overtime upset of rival Oklahoma. Last season as a sophomore, Rudolph completed 264-of-424 passing for 3,770 yards and 21 touchdowns with just nine interceptions.
Rudolph doesn't push it but his acts of kindness off the field include visits to children's hospitals. This past spring he and teammates Austin Hays and James Washington attended a special prom in Bethany, Okla., as escorts for prom attendees. The prom was for special students.
Rudolph is opinionated, but as a quarterback has to be diplomatic, which makes it's fun watching the wheels turn upstairs as he answers these seven questions.
Here is some fun with quarterback Mason Rudolph.
