The 2016 Heisman Trophy has gone to Louisville quarterback, Lamar Jackson. This is the very first Heisman to go to the Louisville Cardinals. Jackson capped of his incredible season with a total of 51 touchdowns and 4,928 total yards. That really is remarkable.
Jackson had this to say, as he wore a Louisville-red suite, "To be able to stand up here with all the former winners, I'm extremely proud to represent this class and Louisville as their first Heisman Trophy winner. For my teammates, it's an award for all of us. I can't wait to cherish it with all of you."
To be completely honest, the Heisman has never really been a huge deal to me. Though it's always nice to see credit given where it's due. But in Jackson's case, it was really great to see him win the infamous trophy. With a season like that, who could argue that anyone else should have taken it.
Congrats, Jackson. You earned it.
