The Best #8

Vote to view results.  Please remember this is for college only - nothing a player did in the NFL should come into play.

Look, the first 4 polls are going to drift down the threads page, so you'll just have to weed through about 4 of them at any given time.  

Is this unwanted?

Davey is the no brainer here

O'Brien led the Horned Frogs to an undefeated season in 1938, including a 15-7 victory over Carnegie Tech in the Sugar Bowl. That year, he became the first player to win the Heisman, Maxwell and Walter Camp trophies in the same year. The award for the country's best quarterback is named in his honor.

The Camp award started in 1967......
And the phrase "the first player to win" isnt impressive when it's the 2nd year of these awards, lol.  You must work for a certain news channel....

I still don't think Lamar gets the love he deserves.  His OL was dog shit.  How did avoid any hard hits?  I'm skewed by going to the FSU game where he made them look like they were on ice skates .

Yeah, I tuned in late to that game and thought the score graphic was an error, lol.  Could not wrap my head around it.

I guess it wasn't a trophy, just one of the players selected to the ... Walter Camp Football Foundation All America Team 1938
and the news source is SI
