LSU’s Joe Burrow wins the Heisman

Louisiana State University football player Joe Burrow has won the 2019 Heisman Trophy.

Burrow is the 85th winner of the prestigious award, presented annually by the Heisman Trophy Trust to the most outstanding player in college football.

As quarterback, Burrow led No.1 LSU to an undefeated 13-0 season, throwing for 4,715 yards and 48 touchdowns.

Burrow shattered Heisman voting records, notching the highest percentage of first place votes, the highest percentage of possible points and appearing on the most ballots, according to the Heisman Trust. His margin of victory (1,846 points) bettered the long-standing record set by O.J. Simpson in 1968.

“I wouldn’t have traded my journey for anything,” Burrow said after his name was announced.

Burrow transferred to LSU from Ohio State in 2018. He is now preparing his team to face Oklahoma University in the Peach Bowl on Dec. 28.

Before playing college football, Burrow was a star quarterback at Athens High School in The Plains, Ohio, where he threw for 4,445 yards and 63 touchdowns during his senior year in 2014.
