NOTE: Kansas State has elected to advance players’ classification even though the 2020 season did not affect eligibility. Those who wish to take advantage of this extra year will be listed as a (“super”) senior again after their original eligibility would have been exhausted.

Goal No. 16: RESPONSIBILITY. You are responsible for your own performance.

Seth Michael Porter (b. June 11, 1999) is a former walk-on wide receiver from Clear Springs High School in Friendswood, Texas, who is majoring in communications studies.

Porter prepped at Clear Springs under head coach Randall Garlington and was a second-team all-district safety (in 2017) who accumulated 134 tackles, four interceptions and 18 pass breakups during his career. He also played soccer, earning all-district accolades.

After enrolling at K-State, Porter redshirted in 2018 and was a co-winner of the team’s Red Raider Award as the top contributor on the scout squad.

He then played in all 13 games in 2019, primarily on special teams, and also saw playing time in the Bowling Green game as a reserve wide receiver, hauling in a 12-yard pass.

Porter played in nine games in 2020 on special teams and as a reserve wide receiver.

He blocked a punt against Texas Tech, the third blocked punt by the Wildcats in as many games to open the season, and had a 1-yard rush on a jet sweep against Oklahoma State.

Porter also tallied a tackle on punt coverage against Texas and finished the season as a first-team Academic All-Big 12 performer.

His father, Mark, was a kicker for Kansas State from 1985 to 1988 and his younger brother, Shane, also is a current wide receiver for the Wildcats.
