Kyle Seager – Clemson Tigers

Two words can describe these two: consistent and underrated.

Some believe that because Seager plays in the Pacific Northwest at a loaded position, he doesn’t get the attention he deserves. But even with the lack of attention, Seager has been nothing but great.

Over his 6 year career, he averages 26 home runs and 88 RBI’s per season, along with a wicked good glove. He has finished in the top 20 in MVP voting twice in his career.

But the great part of Seager’s game, he is only going to get better. He is entering his age 28 season and as he enters his prime, he should solidify his game and could be competing for an MVP this season.

Although he is not the star of the team, Seager is a top-40 player and a backbone to the success of the team.

Clemson is an under the radar team because they are simply not flashy. In today’s game, people love hard hits and obscene scores, and Clemson just plays technical football, but it works.

Clemson for the past couple of years has been reliably in the top few football teams and they finally got their championship.

Even the loss of their star QB will not slow down this football team. Clemson will still be the team to beat and they will continue to prove that technical football is still the foolproof way to win games.

2017 should continue to show that Seager and Clemson have continued success and maybe someday be the stars of the national spotlight.
