The Heisman Trophy presentation has and always will call for something new. New suits, new ties, new shoes, new haircuts, new experiences. But most importantly, this year's presentation will feature a new kind of finalist. Someone who the college football world is not accustomed to seeing.
Tyrann Mathieu is not your average Heisman Trophy finalist.
He's not 6'3" with a magical gifted arm.
He's not 225 pounds with the ability to run both around and through defenders.
He's not 6'4" with the ability to jump over defenders to make highlight catches.
Tyrann Mathieu is everything but your ordinary Heisman Trophy candidate.
He is a 5'9", 175-pound defensive back who makes college football enthusiasts think back to the days of Deion Sanders with Florida State and Charles Woodson with Michigan.
Every Heisman finalist has a resume filled from top to bottom. But Mathieu's is different. Mathieu's is unique. Mathieu's is special.
Tyrann Mathieu is new.
Here are five reasons why Tyrann Mathieu should be this year's Heisman Trophy winner.
