    2013 HEISMAN WATCH LIST

    1) A. McCarron- Senior (RS) QB #10 (Alabama)[​IMG]
    The top returning QB from a year ago, McCarron will look to lead his team back to prominence and repeat as National Champions. He will called upon early and often to put this team on his shoulders until the addition of newly acquired RB’s can gain some experience.

    2) Chris Dunkley- Junior (RS) WR #89 (Florida)[​IMG]
    Dunkley is The Gators top returning WR from a year ago. He posted 1120yds and 14 td’s (86.2 yds per game). Whether or not its QB Blake Wallace or Trey Burton, look for them to find Dunkley early and often to utilize his excellent speed in the open field.

    3) Nick Florence- Senior (RS) QB #11 (Arizona State)[​IMG]
    The senior signal caller lead the Pac 10 in passing yds, td passes, and QB rating. If the Sun Devils are to make some noise in the Pac 10 this season, they will have to keep Florence upright as he was sacked a league high 40 times in ’12. Look for him to spread the wealth to a deep WR group.

    4) James Franklin- Senior QB #1 (Missouri)[​IMG]
    Mr. “DO IT ALL” Franklin is the top returning rusher (333yds) and passer (4195yds) for The Tigers from a year ago despite being labeled as a RB. Depending on where they need him the most, look for Franklin to be the focal point of The Mizzou offensive attack in 2013!
    5) Curtis Dukes- Senior (RS) RB #26 (Penn State) [​IMG]
    The lone “true” RB to make the preseason Heisman list, Dukes gained over 1300yds (1345) and found the endzone 22 times in ’12. He nearly boosted his squad into the National Championship Game despite losing two regular season contests. You can best believe that The Nittany Lions will give Dukes the ball early and often to once again challenge for the covenant hardware.

    OTHER PLAYERS TO LOOK OUT FOR IN 2013: Statistics in '12

    Zack Lee QB #17 (LSU) 3059 passing yds 28 tds-7ints

    Mark Robertson QB #9 (Ohio St.) 3347 passing yds 31tds-15ints

    Antwan Smith QB #10 (Miami) 3243 passing yds 26tds-11ints

    Sterling Phifer HB #21 (Boston College) 1120yds rushing 11td's

    Beau Burton HB #38 (Utah) 1247yds rushing 9td's

    Spencer Ware HB #16 (LSU) 1242yds rushing 11td's

    Mike Davis WR #4 (Texas) 1223 rec. yds 9 td's

    Jeff Duckworth WR #7 (Wisconsin) 1097 rec. yds 10td's

    Derek McDougal WR/TE #12 (Miami) 1245 rec. yds 10 td's

    HEISMAN WATCH LIST THROUGH WEEK 4:

    1) A. McCarron QB #10 (Alabama)

    Se

    [​IMG]
    nior (RS) QB #10 (Alabama)

    McCarron still leads the Hesiman Trophy race despite not leading the nation in passing numbers. Thus far this season, he has completed 47 of 68 passes for 818yds and 8 td’s. He has thrown 4 int’s, but four of them came in Week 1’s game against the Tar Heels of North Carolina. If McCarron can continue to lead his team in victory against some stiff competition, look for him to remain at the top of everyone’s Heisman Ballot!

    2) Conner Wood QB #10 (Texas)


    [​IMG]


    Wood has completed 80 of 143 passes for 979yds 11td’s 0 int’s (he has already tied his td mark from a year ago. Wood has also done some good things in the running gaining 134yd’s 2 td’s. A big part to why The Longhorns are doing so well has to be in large part because of the success Wood has garnered thus far this season.

    3) Kadrone Boone WR #86 (LSU)


    [​IMG]


    Perhaps the best WR in the country at this point of the season, Boone has lit teams up to the toon of 22 rec for 481yd’s 4 td’s. He is second in the nation in receiving yds and is QB Zack Lee's favorite. The Tigers will go as far as Boone takes them and right now.......there seems to be no end in sight!

    4) C.J. Mosely MLB #98 (Alabama)


    [​IMG]


    A surprise in the polls would have to be the play of LB Mosely from the University of Alabama. He has tallied 21 solo tackles, forced two fumbles and get this……leads the nation in interceptions with 4. If
    Mosely can continue his outstanding performances, he will do what not many in his position have accomplished.....become a defensive Heisman Trophy winner.

    5) Chris Dunkley WR #89 (Florida)


    [​IMG]


    Dunkley hasn’t wowed the sports nation thus far this season hauling in just 9 rec. for 135yd and 0 td’s. Florida has had some pretty tough competition this season and Dunkley has failed to shown up in any of them. Maybe last seasons success has teams paying more attention to him, but whatever the case may be, if Dunkley continues at this pace, he'll just be another statistic no one remembers.

    THE SHORT LIST UPDATED:

    Clint Shelf QB Oklahoma St.

    Nick Florence QB Arizona St.

    Nick Kennedy HB Georgia

    Spencer Ware HB LSU

    Robert Battle TE Virginia Tech

    Damien Thigpen HB UCLA

    Heisman Trophy Update 2013: Week 8

    1) Jay Johnson
    QB Boise St [​IMG]
    .
    Johnson is the new leader of the current Heisman race. He has amassed 2281 passing yards with 22 td passes to just 3 ints. He is the fourth highest rated passer (181.2) in the FBS. The Broncos are currently ranked #7 in the country with an 8-0 record.

    2) Braylon Heard
    HB Nebraska [​IMG]
    .
    Heard is currently third in the FBS in rushing with 1035yds rushing. He has found the endzone a nation leading 13 times. His team’s success relies heavily on his punishing running style with speed to go with. His ability to break down their opponents defense and finish them in the fourth qtr when it matters most is the key if Nebraska is to make a run.

    3) Kadrone Boone
    WR LSU [​IMG]
    .
    Boone has been quiet of late, only hauling in 15 rec for 308yds and just 2 td’s in the Tigers last four ball games. (481yds and 4 td’s previous 4 games) However, don’t let this fool you. Boone is still one of the best overall receivers in the country and can explode at anytime. Consistent play the last quarter of the season will determine whether or not Boone will be invited to New York.

    4) Clint Chelf
    QB Oklahoma St. [​IMG]
    .
    Chelf leads the nation in passing yds (2670), passing td’s (25), and is second in passing yds per game (296.6). He has also rushed for 271yds and 3 td’s on the season. The aerial assault displayed by the Cowboys is very tough to defend and if Chelf can continue at his current pace and keep his team winning, you may be looking at the next in a long line of Heisman winners.

    5) Robert Battle
    TE Virginia Tech [​IMG]
    .
    Probably the dark horse of the Heisman race, Battle has been Mr. consistent for the Virginia Tech Hokies. He has caught 53 balls for 666yds (didn’t want to type that ish, but o’well, LOL) and found paydirt 8 times. The reason he may be receiving so much success would probably have to do with the play of his team. The Hokies are currently 8-0 and and #4 in the FBS. Need I say more………

    THE SHORT LIST:

    Nick Florence QB Arizona St.

    Andrew Clifford QB South Carolina

    Tyree Craig HB Georgia Tech

    Jaamal Berry HB Kentucky

    Rajion Neal HB Tennessee

    Ace Sanders WR South Carolina

    Michael Williams TE Kent

    Anthony Johnson WR Northern Illinois

    Heisman Trophy Update 2013: Week 12

    1) Jay Johnson QB
    [​IMG]

    The Broncos signal caller remains #1 in the latest polls. He has compiled 3165yds and 29 td passes with only 5 ints. He has been Mr. consistent as far as statistics go and have his team eyeing a BCS Bowl berth if they can get past Buffalo in their regular season finally. If things pan out like they have in recent years, look for the Broncos to possibly play for a National Title this season.

    2) Derek McDougal TE

    [​IMG]

    Many people look at the season this guy had last season and road it off as being a fluke. The 6’8 TE has proved otherwise by topping his numbers from last season with over 12yds receiving and 13 td’s. His biggest unknown statistic may be his drops. So far this season, McDougal has not dropped a single pass. That’s pretty remarkable considering the demand his position has on a player. He also leads the nation in receptions with 92.

    3) Devin Gardner QB

    [​IMG]
    A new comer to the list, Gardner has wow the voters with his versatile play. His numbers aren’t terrific in a particular area by themselves, but if you combine them, they make for a very productive player. He has thrown for 1886yds 15td’s while running for an additional 471 more, giving him well over 2000yd of total offense. His play also has his team one game from making The National Championship Game which has eluded them the past three seasons. Could this be the year of the Wolverines?

    4) Jaamal Berry HB

    [​IMG]
    Berry isn’t much of surprise considering the job Coach Knight has done with this team. Since taking over the realms, The Wildcats have had a 1000 yd rusher each of the four years he’s been there. Berry a transfer from the University of Ohio St., has rushed for 1343yds on just 152 carries for an incredible 8.8 ypc average (tops in the nation). Some tough early season losses could have played a big part into why Berry wasn’t on this list sooner, but now he’s in rare form and looking to get the call to represent his team for the covenant hardware.

    5) Clint Chelf QB

    [​IMG]
    Down a spot from the last list, Chelf record setting pace has slowed as he has thrown for a mere 398yds and 4 td’s since the last list was released. He’s poor play has saw his team drop some close games, but his last performance keep him from falling out of the race completely, as he threw for four td passes in a win. At this point, Chelf is on the outside looking in to be named the next best player in all of college football.

    Short List:

    Nick Florence QB Arizona St.

    Tyree Craig HB Georgia Tech

    Braylon Heard HB Nebraska

    Beau Burton HB Utah

    Cameron Gordon CB Michigan

    Deandre Perry WR Houston

    Damien Bryant WR Miami

    2014 Heisman Trophy Candidates: Week 4
    [​IMG]

    1) Derek McDougal TE​

    [​IMG]
    McDougal is last seasons Heisman Trophy and Mackey Winner (Best TE) and doesn’t look to be slowing down thus far this season. The 6’8 250lb TE is a catching maniac. Last year, he has hauled in 110 receptions for 1523yds and 15 td’s. So far this season, he caught 22 passes for 412yds and 5 td’s. If he keeps at this pace, he’ll break his Heisman Trophy season stats and could become mentioned amongst the best to ever play the position.​

    2) Carlos Hyde HB​

    [​IMG]
    Hyde has dominated the run game this season for the Ohio St. Buckeyes and is the key to why they are undefeated and ranked in the top 5 in the BCS (currently #4). Hyde has rushed for a daunting 728yds and 11td’s this season. Hyde is a unique specimen; he has speed and power which makes it hard to stop him. He can outrun slower LBS and run over smaller, faster defenders. Look for the Senior HB to be invited to New York; that is , if he can stay health throughout the long, tough season.​

    3) Kadron Boone WR​

    [​IMG]
    Boone returns for his SR season being mentioned as a Heisman hopefully once again. Last season, Boone stayed on the Heisman Trophy watch list, but failed to make any head waves toward the latter part of the season; which ultimately hurt his Heisman candidacy. But a hot start this season (18 receptions for 362yds and 4 td’s), has voters mentioning Boone again. Could this be the year Boone gets over the hump? Stay tuned……..​

    4) Damien Bryant WR​

    [​IMG]
    The only reason this guy didn't win the Heisman Trophy last season was because his team mate McDougal beat him to it. Bryant finished second in the Heisman Trophy race and looks to keep his name on everyone’s ballot. Bryant, not very fast considering his speed is only 87; he does everything else exceptionally well. He has hauled in 27 passes for 340yds and 4 td’s in four contests. As long as the Canes keep airing it, Bryant will be reeling them in!​

    5) Nick Perry SS​

    [​IMG]
    You would have to go back some 15-16 years to find a player on the defensive side of the ball to win the covenant trophy; that’s why a whole lot of hype isn’t being thrown in Perry’s direction. The SR SS has tallied 16 tackles, 4 ints, 4 pass deflections and forced 2 fumbles this season. When mentioning Perry, he doesn’t do one thing well, he’s a well balanced player and key contributor to the Tide defensive unit.

    THE SHORT LIST:

    CHAZ DOYLE QB LSU

    JASON WHITAKER QB NCSU

    ANTWAN SMITH QB MIAMI

    MARCUS COKER HB IOWA

    TREVOR JEFFERSON HB MIAMI

    ALEX RICHARDS TE UCLA

    AARON WILLIMS TE MISSOURI
