Guess who is leading Kansas State in tackles? If you said Elijah Lee then you probably have as big a man crush on him as I do.

Terrale Johnson has had a long journey to the K-State offensive line, but now he's finally home (Emilio Rivera, Topeka Captial-Journal). Not only is Johnson at home with Kansas State, but he's stepping up for the offensive line who has had struggles with injury (Kellis Robinett, KC Star).
