The Heisman Trophy is awarded annually to the best player in college football, as voted on by a lot of people who may or may not be fulfilling their diligent duty to decide who the best player in college football is. Often times the award comes down to a combination of team success, gaudy statistics and a sick highlight reel. Louisville’s Lamar Jackson has enough of these that he will win this year’s trophy.
No player from a North Carolina school has ever won the Heisman Trophy. Then again, North Carolina did have the band Johnny Quest in the 80s/early 90s to give us this gem:
