Heisman Buzz Begins: The Dwayne Train Is Rolling

There were some questions heading into this season about whether or not quarterback Dwayne Haskins would earn the starting spot, and after his stellar first three performances, it seems all those doubts have been put to rest. This is Dwayne’s position to lose, and it doesn’t seem like he has any plans to lose it any time soon.

Haskins came into his 2018 campaign on a few Heisman race charts, and his 11 touchdowns, 890 yards passing, and a big performance against TCU has thrusted his name even further in the race. He caught the attention of FOX Sports college football reporter, Joel Klatt, and this is what Klatt had to say about the true sophomore quarterback terrorizing defenses thus far:

Currently, ESPN has Haskins ranked at fourth on the Heisman watchlist. In front of him is Oklahoma’s junior quarterback Kyler Murray in first, Alabama’s sophomore quarterback Tua Tagovailoa, and West Virginia’s senior quarterback Will Grier. The list also includes Houston’s junior defensive tackle Ed Oliver and Wisconsin’s sophomore running back Johnathon Taylor. It’s worth noting that since 2008, only two non-quarterbacks (Derrick Henry, RB, 2015 and Mark Ingram II, RB, 2009) have won the Heisman trophy.

Not girls that use the “I don’t know you” excuse to not give you a chance at all. Maybe in the end they’re actually missing out!
