Heisman Trophy 2012: Ka'Deem Carey hopes to make Arizona history

Christian Petersen

Ka'Deem Carey is hoping his 2012 season is enough to earn him a place in Wildcat history.

Ka'Deem Carey may no be a Heisman trophy finalist, but the Arizona Wildcats' star running back is still hoping to garner some votes. Carey reportedly has a chance at picking up some third-place votes, which would make him the first player in Arizona history to receive Heisman Trophy votes.

Carey, a sophomore, was first among FBS schools with 146.42 rushing yards per game. Only Jordan Lynch of Northern Illinois has more total yards, with 1771 to Carey's 1757.

Carey might be a long shot for Heisman votes in 2012, but the future is a different story. He made a massive step up between his freshman and sophomore season, picking up more than 1,300 more yards and adding 1.7 yards to his average yards per carry. He's not in the kind of program that makes noise in the Heisman debate, but another year leading the nation will at least buy Carey a part of the conversation. Until then, he'll have to settle for hoping for any votes at all.

The Heisman winner will be announced at 8 p.m. ET on ESPN.
