Entry from US English dictionary
An annual award given to the outstanding college football player in the US by the Downtown Athletic Club of New York City.
- He had something happen this year to his star receiver, who was a Heisman Trophy candidate, who I think would have probably won, and the young man came in and said, Coach Bowden, will they ever, ever forget this?
- As much as Texas coach Mack Brown says a Heisman Trophy can be won without 100-yard efforts every weekend - he points to Williams' 43 yards against Kansas State in 1998 as an example - he knows better.
- He wasn't a Heisman Trophy finalist for nothing - that field general they have is awesome.
Named in honor of football pioneer John W. Heisman (1869–1936).
