Another Celebrity Endorses Hubbard

Jordan King - November 13, 2019 10:12 am

Chuba Hubbard’s dominance on the ground for the Oklahoma State football team has thrust him into the midst of a Heisman Trophy campaign.

Hubbard will likely have to put up numbers like Barry Sanders did back in 1988 if he is to unseat LSU’s Joe Burrow or Ohio State’s Justin Fields, but it won’t be for lack of support.

OSU athletics launched their social media campaign for the star several weeks ago and it was spurred on at the beginning by the greatest Canadian sports figure around.

Since Gretzky’s message, many in Canada have embraced Hubbard for the award that goes to America’s top college football player. From the Edmonton Oilers to the Eskimos of the Canadian Football League, many have appreciated Hubbard’s greatness on the ground this year.

Through the two bye weeks for nearly every team, Hubbard has a commanding lead over the rest of the country in rushing yards with his 1,604.

Hubbard’s consistency has been a large part of his statistical dominance, including special performances against both Tulsa and Kansas State when he rushed for 256 and 296 yards respectively.

Well Hubbard was recognized once again by another Canadian celebrity:

So the momentum is strong for Hubbard as he tries to continue his dominant season for the Pokes and tries to end up in New York City.
