Baylor University's Robert Griffin III Wins Heisman Trophy

Robert Griffin III

Congrats!

Baylor University quarterback Robert Griffin III took college football's top honor this weekend and won the 2011 Heisman Trophy on Saturday.

The QB, who threw for almost 4,000 yards this season, is the 32nd player of that position to be honored with the award since it's inception in 1935.

This year's most outstanding player in college football won after he received 405 first-place votes and 1,687 total points, compared to 1,407 points garnered by runner-up Andrew Luck, a quarterback for Stanford.

Griffin is the FIRST player in Baylor history to win the trophy (and he's only a junior)!

Last year's Heisman trophy winner, also a quarterback, was the NFL's first overall draft pick, so it looks like Griffin's got a fantastic future in football ahead of him.
