Russell relishes chance to play near hometown

It's finally Seth Russell's time to shine.

Russell, the latest cog to enter Art Briles' plug-and-play, high-powered Baylor offense, seems destined for stardom. After following Robert Griffin III and Bryce Petty, conventional wisdom would say the next guy in line for the Baylor quarterback job should feel immense pressure.

The Garland native will start for the Bears when they take on SMU on Friday. Check out what makes him tick at The Baylor Lariat.
