Heisman Trophy 2010: Cam Newton Wins Heisman Trophy
The Heisman Trophy for 2010 has finally been awarded.
Not surprisingly, it went to Auburn quarterback Cam Newton. He becomes the third Auburn player ever to win the award, joining Pat Sullivan (1971) and Bo Jackson (1985).
Statistically speaking, 2010 was a brilliant season for Newton. He passed for 2,589 yards and 28 touchdowns, and he ran for 1,409 yards and 20 touchdowns, making him just the third player in college football history to throw and run for 20 touchdowns in a single season.
He also caught a touchdown pass, bringing his grand total to 49.
Newton had a hard time keeping the tears back during his acceptance speech, but he did make it a point to voice his support for his father.
Yes, Cecil Newton very nearly ended his son's season thanks to his behind-the-scenes dealings, but I think we have to give the younger Newton the benefit of the doubt at this point. After all, the NCAA did. So can we.
So where does Newton's Heisman season rank among the award's most recent winners? For the answer to that question, you'll have to check out my rankings of Cam Newton and the Last 25 Heisman Winners.
