Dalvin Cook's Heisman campaign is simple: 'Because I'm Dalvin'

Florida State sophomore running back Dalvin Cook is making history during just his second season in Tallahassee. On Saturday against N.C. State, he broke Warrick Dunn's single-season rushing record that was set in 1995. With 1,369 and 14 touchdowns on the season so far, the back is mentioned in the Heisman conversation, especially after former frontrunner Leonard Fournette has had two down weeks against Alabama and Arkansas.

Cook was asked after Florida State's 34-17 win over N.C. State about whether or not he should be in New York for the Heisman Trophy ceremony in December. His campaign to be there is simple -- he deserves to be there because of who he is.

"Do you feel like you should be invited to New York [ where the Heisman ceremony is held]?," one reporter asked via the Orlando Sentinel.

"Do you feel like you should win the trophy?"

"Yeah," Cook said.

"Why?"

"I just feel like I just run the ball the way I run the ball. If I keep doing me..." Cook said as he stopped and then redirected his train of thought. "Because I'm Dalvin.

"I feel like I'm one of the great running backs that's in collegiate football."
