College Football: 5 Greatest Players Never To Win the Heisman

B/R StudiosFeatured ColumnistNovember 3, 2011

The Heisman trophy is the most prestigious award in college football, and its winners rank among the game’s greatest players. But, like with every major award, there are always players that slip through the cracks. I’m B/R CFB analyst John Greely, and I’ve ranked the top five players in college football history that never won.

Some of these players won national titles, others broke tons of records and all dominated opponents week in and week out. A couple of these guys even have awards named in their honor, which goes to show just how good they were. But what they have in common is the lack of one major statuette in their trophy cases.

I’d also like to mention that there were plenty more deserving candidates that didn’t make the list. It’s tough to cut the rankings to just five, so apologies go out to all those who were snubbed.

So have at it! Watch the video, let me know what you think and give me a follow on Twitter @johnwgreely.
