The Heisman. The most prestigious individual award in all of sports. The Heisman is given to the best college football player in the country each year. Here are my top 5 candidates for the award this season.
Andrew Luck, Junior QB, Stanford – Finished 2nd for the award last year. Dude is the next Peyton Manning. He is simply the best quarterback in college football. So far this year he has 8 touchdowns and 1 interception for 786 yards.
Marcus Lattimore, Sophomore RB, South Carolina – Only a sophomore, Lattimore is a beast. His team hands him the rock and lets him put them on his back for the victory week after week. He’s got 611 yds for 8 TDs.
Tyrann Mathieu, Sophomore DB, LSU – Mathieu is a nuisance to defenses that play the Tigers each week. He was all over the field last week against West Virginia. He had multiple tackles, 1 forced fumble, 1 fumble recovery and 1 interception.
Russell Wilson, Senior QB, Wisconsin – The athletic quarterback has been a blessing for the Badgers. He transferred from North Carolina State after his coach there would not allow him to play baseball at the end of the football season. Doubling as a minor league baseball player, Wilson has led Wisconsin this season with 1,136 yards, 11 touchdowns and 1 interception.
Robert Griffin III, Junior QB, Baylor – Griffin has been a monster this season. Baylor has always been a less than mediocre football program. However, this season Griffin has people believe in the Bears. He has yet to throw an interception, has thrown for 962 yards and more touchdowns than incompletions (13 TDs, 12 incomplete passes). Unreal.
