2013 Heisman Candidates

heisman

 

As spring comes to a close, college football fans have just a few short months until the game is back upon us.  The early rankings and predictions will start rolling in.  Analysts and professionals will do their best to pick everything from the next national champion to Les Miles’ next trick play.  One of the more popular prognostications is guessing who will win the Heisman Trophy.  As the season draws closer, you will undoubtedly be asked your opinion on the subject.  Your neighbor, your boss, your brother…  Someone will be curious of your Heisman favorite.  It’s your duty to be educated on the subject.  It’s my duty to provide the resources and information.  Check out some of the guys making noise in the 2013 Heisman race here!

*Note- This list is not all-inclusive and is in no way a ranking of the players listed.  It is simply a list of some of the popular picks for the 2013 Heisman Trophy.

*Also, I did my best to find appropriate highlight videos.  But, it was difficult to do this with all of them.  A few of the videos may have inappropriate language.  Just for those with kids in the house…

Without further ado, here’s some of your 2013 Heisman favorites!:
