The Heisman Trophy isn’t an actual award, it’s a Heisman Trophy trophy.
It’s given out annually by the NCAA to college football’s national champions.
It was first given to Alabama quarterback AJ McCarron in 2014.
ESPN’s Dan Wolken and The Associated Press awarded the award to the Heisman Trophy winner, in honor of Heisman Trophy winners in football, basketball and other sports.
ESPN College Football writer Nick Wagoner named five of the 10 winners of the award: McCarra, Heisman Trophy runner-up Derrick Henry, Heisman Award winner Marcus Mariota, Clemson quarterback Deshaun Watson and Oklahoma State receiver Josh Doctson.
The AP named three of the other five players to the first round of voting, including Heisman Trophy frontrunner Dak Prescott, Florida State quarterback Jameis Winston and Alabama quarterback Blake Barnett.
McCarrons first-place vote was a combined 54.2 percent, followed by Henry, who received 42.5 percent, and Mariota (37.7), who was second with 25.7 percent.
Prescott and Winston tied for third place, each with 17.2.
Henry, Watson and Barnett tied for fourth.
Prescott had the most first-round votes, receiving 14.3, followed closely by Prescott and Watson with 11.2 and 10.3.
The other Heisman Trophy contenders were Alabama quarterback Jalen Hurts, Michigan State quarterback Dak Prescott and Clemson quarterback Deondre Francois.
The Heisman Trophy’s first-year award winner is selected by an audience of 12 members of the media.
The Heisman is awarded annually by a panel of more than a dozen Heisman Trophy nominees, including current and former players, coaches, media members, media analysts and media members of colleges, universities and high schools.
This year’s winner will be announced March 3, 2018.
