Heisman Winner, As they walked out of the press room in the Marriott Marquis to make their way across a bustling Times Square for the Heisman Trophy ceremony, Montee Ball grabbed onto Robert Griffin III’s throwing arm with both of his hands.
“This RG3 is strong,” the Wisconsin running back said, the two breaking into laughter as the Baylor quarterback and the other finalists were ushered behind a curtain and led down the escalators. Strong? Ball had no idea.
A couple of hours later, it was Griffin who stood on the Best Buy Theater podium, flashing his Superman socks, cape and all, to the nation as he captured the 77th Heisman, beating out Stanford’s Andrew Luck by 280 points.
“It’s unbelievable and believable,” Griffin said. “It’s unbelievable because in the moment, we’re all amazed when great things happen. But it’s believable because great things don’t happen without hard work. The great [Baylor] coach Art Briles always says great things only come with great effort. We’ve certainly worked for this. That’s right — everybody associated with Baylor University has a reason to celebrate tonight.”
