Alabama Crimson Tide quarterback Bryce Young has been crowned this year’s Heisman Trophy winner at Saturday’s ceremony in New York.
The Pasadena-born sophomore received 684 first-place votes for 2,311 total points, winning ahead of Michigan defensive end Aidan Hutchinson (954 points) and Pittsburgh quarterback Kenny Pickett (631 points).
Young effectively clinched the annual award for the most outstanding player in college football with his performance last week in the SEC Championship game against Georgia’s vaunted defense.
The 20-year-old has completed 314 of 462 passes for 4,322 yards and 43 touchdowns with only four interceptions this season.
“Whenever you can win an award like this, it doesn’t go as an individual award but it’s a team award because I couldn’t do it without any of those guys,” Young said in his acceptance speech, referring to his team-mates, after becoming only the fourth Crimson Tide player to win the award.
“I’d like to thank coach [Nick] Saban. Thank you for believing in me. Thank you for your guidance and putting me in situations to be successful and for us as a team to be successful.”
