From an AP report:
Florida State’s Jameis Winston, Northern Illinois’ Jordan Lynch, Texas A&M’s Johnny Manziel, Alabama’s AJ McCarron, Auburn’s Tre Mason and Boston College’s Andre Williams were chosen Monday as the finalists for the Heisman Trophy.
Six finalists invited to ceremony in New York are the most since 1994. The winner will be announced Saturday.
I see no conceivable way that McCarron wins this award, but the contrast between he and the other finalists will be stunning. McCarron has been part of three national championship teams – the starter on two – and besides a conference championship or two, the other five have one nothing.
It’s a nice tribute to a great college quarterback and he will have another well-deserved moment in the sun. And it’ll be part of a great way to end his college career.
