Heisman Trophy Winners

Image via Wikipedia

The list of nominees for this year's Heisman Trophy was announced the other day, and I don't know about you, but the most interesting nominee isn't AJ, Tre, Johnny, Jordan, or Andre. It's Jameis. Where did that come from? I cannot find anything on it, and if you don't know anything about me yet, you should know that when my curiosity is piqued, a post usually happens. What other great names can we find among Heisman Trophy winners?

One more thing about the current nominees... AJ's given name is Raymond Anthony McCarron, Jr. I love surprises.

On to the list. Here are the names of past Heisman Trophy winners. Maybe you college-football-loving parents out there can find a gem that works for you...
