Ohio State redshirt sophomore quarterback Dwayne Haskins has been named as a Heisman Finalist. Haskins will be in New York City on Friday and Saturday.
He will be in the Big Apple to attend the pre-Heisman Trophy festivities on Friday. Then on Saturday, he’ll attend the prestigious Heisman Trophy event.
Haskins will be in the “City that never sleeps” with Oklahoma Sooners quarterback Kyler Murray and Alabama Crimson Tide quarterback Tua Tagovailoa.
He is the first Heisman finalist since 2006 from Ohio State. Their quarterback Troy Smith won the award that year.
The Buckeyes have won the Heisman Trophy seven times. They are tied with the Notre Dame Fighting Irish with the most all-time.
Besides Smith, running back Eddie George won it in 1995. Running back Archie Griffin also won it as the first back-to-back winner in 1974 and 1975. He’s the only individual, who has won the award twice.
Running back Howard “Hopalong” Cassady won the award in 1955. Running back Vic Janowicz also won the award in 1950.
Les Horvath was the first Heisman Trophy winner from Ohio State in 1944.
