University of Southern California quarterback Caleb Williams won college football's most prestigious honor, the Heisman Trophy, during a ceremony in New York City Saturday night.
Williams, a sophomore, entered his first season with the Trojans with sky-high expectations after he transferred from Oklahoma. Williams not only met those expectations, he exceeded them by leading the Trojans all the way to the Pac-12 Championship game.
Williams becomes the school's 8th player to win the Heisman, the first since Reggie Bush in 2005. The Washington D.C. native also becomes the first person from the DMV (District of Columbia, Maryland, Virginia) to get a Heisman.
Williams received 2,031 total points from Heisman voters -- easily surpassing TCU quarterback Max Duggan, who finished second. Ohio State’s C-J Stroud came in third place, followed by Stetson Bennett of Georgia.
