ST LOUIS (LALATE) – Who won the Heisman Trophy Award 2013 tonight December 14, and who won Heisman Trophy voting results this evening 12-14-13? Jameis Winston has won the Heisman Trophy Award 2013 in a live announcement tonight. Jameis Winston is the winner of the Heisman Trophy Award for college football for the 2013-14 season. Final voting results were announced to news this evening December 14, 2013 moments ago.
Before the 2011 Heisman Trophy Award announcement, Robert Griffin III of Baylor dominated predictions. Then a junior at Baylor, Griffin was asked at the time how he compared himself to the other Heisman finalist. He told ESPN news at the time “that’s a tough comparison. For Baylor to get that first Heisman trophy, it lifts up that community. That is why we want it.”
A year earlier, Cam Newton dominated predictions and went on to win the award. But when asked by news in 2011, RG3 said “As far as confidence goes, you don’t want to feel like you are owed anything. I am nervous like anyone else.” Griffin said that nerves during the ceremony were his biggest fear. “I think it’s just like anyone else. You want to be nervous. You don’t want feel like you are owed something. That what the Heisman is about. We all find out at the same time.”
In 2011, Griffin went on to beat out finalists Andrew Luck, Trent Richardson, Tyrann Mathieu, and Montee Ball. After winning in December 2011, RG3 was pursued by the Redskins in March 2012.
Then on December 8, 2012 Johnny Manziel dominated Heisman predictions for the 2012 season. Collin Klein of Kansas State, Johnny Manziel of Texas A&M and Manti Te’o of Notre Dame were that year’s nominees. Manziel went on to win the award.
Finally, just days ago, Manziel joined the list of nominees for 2013 as well. Tonight’s nominees featured Jordan Lynch of Northern Illinois, Johnny Manziel of Texas A&M, AJ McCarron of Alabama, Jameis Winston of Florida State, Auburn’s Tre Mason and Boston College’s Andre Williams.
