PGWU Heisman Watch
October 5, 2010 Leave a comment
Every Week we will be giving out the top 5 Heisman candidates based on their performance so far in the season. Last weekend gave us some strong showings, from some of the top candidates. Michigan Wolverines QB Denard Robinson continues to seperate himself from the rest of the pack. Terrelle Pryor took a step back with average play and an injury, LaMichael James had a huge week in a very important Pac 10 game.. Here are the top 5 Heisman candidates for this week. They are ranked in reverse order.
5th Cameron Newton QB Auburn Tigers
He has carried the Tigers on his super-sized shoulders to a 5-0 record, both throwing and running the football. His mix of accuracy, a big time arm and mobility are 3 of the biggest reasons Auburn is undefeated.
4th Daniel Thomas RB Kansas State
This do it all running back has the odds stacked against him every week, but he still manages to get his yards and big plays. This former QB is a pro at running the Wildcat for HC Bill Snyder.
3rd DeMarco Murray RB Oklahoma Sooners
Did you see him tip toe the sidelines against Texas last Saturday? He is a do it all player for the Sooners who deserves more pub.
2nd Colin Kaepernick QB Nevada
I know this is probably way too high for many peoples liking, but he is as good as they come with the ball in his hands. He should lead his team to an undefeated record when the Wolfpack face Boise State later in the season.
1st Denard Robinson Michigan Wolverines
I really don’t need to say much about this phenom. He is the Heisman winner right now and if his season continues this way, it will be impossible to overlook Mr. Robinson.
