Video: Ka'Deem Carey highlights from 2012

The Arizona Wildcats saw sophomore Ka'Deem Carey put up a consensus All-American season in 2012. Here are a few highlights.

Perhaps coaches were trying to temper expectations for Ka'Deem Carey. Mike Stoops used him alongside then-senior Keola Antolin in 2011, and Rich Rodriguez said Carey and Daniel Jenkins were options 1 and 1A before the 2012 season began.

Carey said "thanks," then showed that he was everything and more the city of Tucson thought the Canyon Del Oro High School product would be. He became a consensus All-American in just his sophomore season, leading an Arizona Wildcats team with one of the worst defenses in the nation to eight wins.

With all the pressure stacked on quarterback Matt Scott early, it soon became clear that Arizona's Rich Rodriguez had no choice but to keep his star running back on the field and put more and more of the offensive load on his shoulders. Carey delivered time and time again. Whether it was his 366 yards against Colorado, a full-blown assault on USC when Scott got hurt to seal the victory, or failing to put up less than 172 yards in his final four games, there's not much more to be said.

Carey ended his sophomore year with 303 carries for 1,929 yards and 23 touchdowns.
