This is my second of three articles of the Heisman Candidates, Colt McCoy, Sam Bradford, and Tim Tebow. I will be stating in first person their case to win the Heisman Trophy as to why they should, what they have done this year as well as their best accomplishment of this season.
Howdy Ya'll! I'm Colt McCoy, as you all know, and I am truly blessed to be here in this position now. Tim and Sam are amazing athletes. I mean that solely from my heart and even if I don't take it home, I still had a great year, and we led Texas football to a great season.
This season has been amazing, after my down year I my sophomore season, I didn't know what I was goin' to do. But Coach Mack got in there with me and worked me real hard and got me back and built me up. I put on some muscle, and we we've been on a roll ever since our first game.
I feel that this year I made the best of what I had even when I had the least. I was faced with adversity and had basically no offensive help, but yet I put up numbers that are extremely similar to Sam and Tim, who had a ton more weapons than I did.
I mean, it wouldn't surprise me to get the "You're not in the Championship game," argument, but I could just as easily be there if our standing were not run by computers.
My best accomplishment of the year was probably beating Oklahoma in our rivalry game; I played great, but most importantly my team did an amazing job of meshing together to beat Oklahoma in the Cotton Bowl.
I may not have had as amazing of stats as my competitors, but bum howdy I made it happen when it counted by converting countless times on third downs, an man just leavin' it all on the field.
Hook 'Em Horns!
