Okla. QB Jason White Wins Heisman Trophy
NEW YORK - Jason White capped a remarkable comeback with college football's most prestigious award, winning the Heisman Trophy on Saturday night a year after an injury nearly ended his career.

The Oklahoma quarterback, who almost quit football following his second major knee injury in September 2002, beat out Pittsburgh receiver Larry Fitzgerald for the award.

White threw 40 touchdown passes and led the third-ranked Sooners to 12 straight wins to open the season and a spot in the Bowl Championship Series title game against No. 2 LSU.

Even a subpar performance in a loss in the Big 12 title game last week against Kansas State couldn't stop White from winning the award. His three months of brilliance before that were more than enough to convince voters to pick him.

White, The Associated Press Player of the Year, led the nation in passing efficiency, completing 64 percent of his passes for 3,744 yards and only eight interceptions.

Enh. I don't think there was a runaway choice going in. Of course, he will be another Heisman winning qb to do nothing in the NFL.

(tweaks the thread title)

I didn't think White should've been the Heisman front-runner until near the end of the year. Everyone kept waving him around, but all I saw was "QB for #1 team, and he's not even the reason they're winning". That's still the case, but he had the numbers. Fitzgerald shoulda won, though.
