2012 Heisman Trophy Hopefuls | Week 12

The Heisman Trophy races top 5 list

By Tyler Lurkins

  1.  Johnny Manziel, QB, Texas A and M-This is the year that voters need to disregard the fact that Johnny Football is a Freshman.  He nearly put up 350 yards, while scoring two touchdowns against arguably the top program in the nation.  Manziel is the clear reason why A and M is shooting up the top 10.  He is quickly putting up the numbers to be a 3000/1000 player, the first in SEC history.
  2.  Collin Klein, QB, Kansas St.-Even with an injury, Klein pushed the team for a win over TCU.  Klein will finish strong in all statistical categories.  Also, he may very well lead KSU to a national championship.  Not to knock on the tough QB, but Manziel is bracing himself to be the more valuable of the two QB’s in a tougher conference.
  3. Marquis Lee, WR, USC-After rough outings by Kenjon Barner and Braxton Miller, Lee should warrant consideration in the voting.  Currently, Lee has gather in nearly 100 balls for close to 1500 yards and thirteen scores.  He has tremendous separation from defenders and runs solid routes, all while committing very few mistakes.
  4. Colby Cameron, QB, Louisiana Tech-Welcome to the only article on the net with Cameron as a Heisman hopeful.  Albeit against weaker competition, Cameron has now thrown for 3300 yards, 27 TD’s, and ZERO interceptions.  That is zero in all caps for clarity, folks.  Cameron leads LT into a top 20 ranking.
  5. Braxton Miller, QB, Ohio St.-To be a Heisman winner, you must succeed against lower ranked programs.  Miller threw for under 230 yards against Illinois.  To make matters worse for him, Miller only scraped together 75 yards on 18 carries against a surprising, but still outmatched Illini defense.
