Heisman Watch 2017: Examining Odds and Highlights for Finalists

Chill Lamar Jackson returns to NYC as relaxed Heisman finalist

Chill Lamar Jackson returns to NYC as relaxed Heisman finalist

The Heisman Trophy stands a little more than a foot tall and weighs approximately 25 pounds.

Eli Manning is tied with his brother, Peyton, with one Heisman finalist trip to NY and zero Heisman trophies.

It has recognized the best player in college football over the years and has become an exclusive club that has featured the best to ever play the game.

While Smith - who was friends and high school football teammates with Eliscu - and his likeness became the symbol of college football's most prestigious award, he wasn't aware until 1982 that the trophy was of him.

Mayfield was sublime in that 2016 season, making a trip to NY as a Heisman finalist, but in 2017, he was next-level great, running an offense that exceeded an already historic yards per play in 2016 by a full yard in 2017, and leading Oklahoma to its second berth in the College Football Playoff.

Rock Hill prayer vigil Thursday for DACA immigrant children 'Dreamers'
President Trump has vowed to end the program, making it possible for the so-called " Dreamers " to be deported as early as May. Senator John Cornyn , a Republican from Texas, is a member of the Senate Finance, Intelligence, and Judiciary Committees .

Mayfield returns to NY, where he finished third in the 2016 voting and will likely become the first candidate to win the award after being selected as a finalist the previous season since USC's Reggie Bush in 2005.

Prior to Jackson, Florida State quarterback Jameis Winston had held the title as the youngest Heisman Trophy victor, as he won the award when he was 19 years and 332 days old in 1993. After all, four players Shaw has coached have received invitations to the Heisman ceremony.

Not making that cut was a couple of talented running backs. Toby Gerhart (2009), Andrew Luck (2010, '11) and McCaffrey (2015) all finished second. However, Jackson will likely fall short of becoming just the second two-time Heisman winner-a distinction that should remain with former Ohio State running back Archie Griffin.

Jackson, the 2016 Heisman Trophy victor, becomes the first victor to earn a trip back to the ceremony since Texas A&M's Johnny Manziel won in 2012 and returned as a finalist in 2013. Jackson added 1,443 yards and 17 touchdowns rushing the football, and he averaged 411 yards of total offense per game in 2017, leading the nation in a runaway. "You can't take anything away from him".

SI on Washington: Washington led the nation's receivers with 1,423 yards and was able to walk in several of his 12 touchdowns after he and Cowboys QB Mason Rudolph blew the top off opposing secondaries. For the second consecutive season he threw for over 3,000 yards and added another 1,000 yards on the ground.
