Georgia football Heisman Trophy winner: Jordan Davis
The Jordan Davis Heisman Trophy campaign began early on in the season, and it continues to grow as we type this out. The big man up front is the unsung hero who doesn’t necessarily get the most stats but does a ton in the trenches.
Davis doesn’t need a ton of stats for people to see what he means to this defense and team. He came back for his senior season to do something great and is doing just that.
However, he wins the team’s Heisman Trophy because Davis can do it all. Davis has 24 tackles, 3.5 tackles for loss, two sacks, and nine quarterback hurries. The big man also has two rushes for two yards and a touchdown after getting a couple of carries against Charleston Southern for Senior Day.
Davis is so good, and the nose tackle, to be as large as he is, is extremely fast too. He can run down opponents and get in on the tackle. To be a nose tackle, Davis sure can get to a guy quickly, and when that is barreling towards an opponent, you have to feel bad for them.
The senior sacrificed everything to come back and do it one more time. Now, look at the season Davis has put together and all that he has gotten to do this year. Honorary Red Coat Marching band member, a Heisman Trophy contender — there is truly nothing he cannot do for this team or wouldn’t do.
