Congrats RGIII


(Jerome Miron, US Presswire)

After a fantastic season for the Baylor Bears, junior quarterback Robert Griffin III won college football’s highest honor, the Heisman Trophy. As I have said in a couple posts already, RGIII clearly was the favorite and deserved it more than any of the other four candidates. He finished the season with phenomenal stats, passing for 3,998 yards, 36 touchdowns and only 6 interceptions also completing 72.4% of his passes. Before this season, Griffin was viewed as a good quarterback with no potential to be a quarterback in the NFL, but his athleticism would allow him to possibly work out as a wide receiver. After this season, RGIII has not only solidified the fact that he is a great quarterback and has potential for the NFL, but he is now one of the top quarterbacks going into the draft next season. With a solid frame of 220 pounds and standing 6’2, he has the size, talent and athleticism to become a premier quarterback in the NFL. By the way, where can I get a pair of those socks?!
