Given this recent thread about Lamar Jackson, who in my mind is the leading candidate for the 2016-2017 Heisman Trophy after five games, I wanted to start a general thread about The Heisman Trophy, named after John Heisman, the Downtown Athletic Club's (Lower Manhattan) Athletic Director. The first-ever Heisman Trophy winner was Jay Berwanger, a star halfback for the University of Chicago Maroons, who received his award on Dec 9, 1935. Coincidentally, Berwanger became the first-ever NFL player drafted, in 1936. Think of how significant these two "first-ever" things are! Here's a list of all Heisman Trophy Winners. Please feel free to discuss the award, its recipients, or anything else you wish to discuss.
FYI, Flutie is part Lebanese....while having absolutely nothing to do with this topic, he has likely enjoyed his fair share of kibbeh nayyeh in his lifetime. Although, as unbreakable records go, it is unlikely another part-Lebanese quarterback will win a Heisman....
