Few awards in sports are as hallowed as the Heisman Trophy, given annually to the most outstanding player in college football. The road to a championship requires constant effort from all 11 men on the field, but the trophy represents an unparalleled individual achievement on the game's grandest stage.
Past winners are as revered as the award. Players like Bo Jackson, Marcus Allen and Tim Tebow are eternally part of the Heisman lore. Long before they accepted the honor in New York City, these stars started their careers as coveted college prospects.
