Winston Wins Heisman in a Runaway Vote


There will be no back to back Heisman campaign this season after Jameis Winston was the winner this year by a landslide. Johnny finished fifth in the final results. The Heisman seems to be less about the best player in college football but the best player on a winning team. Winston also won the Dave O’Brien award and Walter Camp awards.

The Aggies went 0-5 in awards this year and it seems they only awarded Winston based on his team playing for the National Championship. Manziel is by far the best player in college football and it is unfortunate that it wasn’t even close in voting. We may be spoiled getting to see SEC football each Saturday but those in the northwest and northeast should tune in. Manziel finishing fifth shows you that the voters weren’t paying attention to football this year.

Here are the final results:

1 Jameis Winston

2 AJ McCarron

3 Jordan Lynch

4 Andre Williams

5 Johnny Manziel

6 Tre Mason

There is no reason that Mason and Manziel should be behind Lynch and McCarron.

In terms of Winston, Bruce Feldman said 115 voters left him off their ballot.
