The Heisman Trophy is most prestigious individual award in college football and possibly in all of sports. It has the ability to change one young man’s life forever. Here are my top ten contenders for the award this season.
1. RB Mark Ingram, Alabama
Ingram is the favorite to win the Heisman Trophy again, and he will be playing for the number one ranked team when the season opens. But there has only been one back to back winner (Ohio State’s Archie Griffin back in 1974 & 1975) in the storied history of the award. Trent Richardson is sure to take some carries away from Ingram as well, so the defending champ will have his work but out for him if he intends to repeat.
