The Heisman Trophy is the most recognizable individual honor in sports. Is that a hot sports opinion or what? But seriously, if you stopped people on the street and asked them to “do the Heisman pose”, a HIGH number of them could do it. The Heisman USUALLY goes to the “most outstanding player in college football”, except in 2005 (cue Vince Young highlights). Each year, sometimes right after the end of the college football season, people will start making their “Heisman Watch Lists” for the next year. Here is mine:

1. Tim Tebow (Florida)- Even though the Heisman has been given out for over 70 years, no Sophomore has ever won it. Well, until last year. Tebow scored an amazing 51 touchdowns last year (29 passing; 22 rushing). He was also 2nd in the country in passing efficiency. It will be hard to keep the same pace as he had last year, but Tebow will definitely be in the spotlight all year long.

2. Michael Crabtree (Texas Tech)- Set all kinds of receiving records at pass happy Texas Tech. Crabtree caught 134 passes for 1,962 yards and 22 touchdowns. I don’t think Crabtree will win the Heisman, but he will probably be at the ceremony. Tech will have a good year, but voters usually aren’t wowed by players from a “gimmicky” offfense.

3. Pat White (West Virginia)- The WVU offense is high powered, and White is the gas that makes it go. Although his numbers aren’t “video game like”, White is a winner who is hard to take down. If WVU is in the national title hunt, expect White to be in New York for the ceremony.

4. Chase Daniel (Missouri)- This guy may not be a future NFL QB, but he sure does know how to play the college game. Daniel had an explosive offense to work with at Missouri, and its more of the same this year. If Daniel and the Tigers can find a way to make it through a tough Big 12 schedule, Daniel may hear his name called in New York.

Ok, thats it. I know I left off a lot of big names like Knowshon Moreno, Noel Devine, Percy Harvin and Chris “Beanie” Wells. I just think those 4 listed have the hype before the season to go along with great talent. Who do you think will win the Heisman?

    Tim Tebow should win for many reasons. I think he should win because he is a Christian, left handed, and hot.

    Tim Tebow should win for so many reasons. I think he should win because he is a Christian, left handed, and hot!
