We’re Crushing: On Notre Dame running back Cam McDaniel

What happens when you’re really, really ridiculously good looking and your helmet gets knocked off during a football play? If you’re Notre Dame running back Cam McDaniel…this.

McDaniel, a junior, rushed for a career high 92 yards during the Irish’s win over the USC Trojans last weekend. But it wasn’t until this shot went viral that he became an instant internet star.

There’s just something about the way he’s breaking tackles, gently cradling the ball, and doing so while staring deep into your soul…with chiseled features, perfectly mussed hair, and sexy smirk to boot.

Usually when a football player loses his helmet, he looks like he lost a few marbles with it. Lately, every time I see the Texans’ J.J. Watt, he’s bleeding profusely from some opening on his face…either organic or man made.

But Cam McDaniel makes football look easy, sexy, and stylish.

If the NFL thing doesn’t work out, the boy’s already got a guaranteed backup plan as a male model.

But this weekend, it’s all about game day and McDaniel will be focused on beating Air Force Academy.

And I’m hoping “Blue Steel” is in his playbook.
