Louisville QB Lamar Jackson wins Heisman Trophy

Quarterback Lamar Jackson becomes the first player in Louisville University to win the Heisman Trophy. The true Sophomore prevailed in the 2016 Heisman balloting with 2,144 points. This season, Jackson scored 51 touchdowns and racked up 4,928 total yards.

Other Heisman candidates included 2nd place finisher Clemson quarterback Deshaun Watson; Oklahoma Sooners quarterback Baker Mayfield; Oklahoma Sooners running back Dede Westbrook; and Michigan multi-position player Jabrill Peppers

What Jackson accomplished in 2016 goes down as the greatest season ever at Louisville, a school where Hall of Famer Johnny Unitas starred in the 1950s.
