Senior quarterback Baker Mayfield took home the Walter Camp Player of the Year Award and the Maxwell Award, both of which are given to the nation's top player, and the Davey O' Brien Award, which goes to the top quarterback.
Mayfield is 262-369 passing for 4,340 yards, 41 touchdowns and five interceptions. Love (83 points) and Jackson (39 points) each received two first-place votes and Penn State running Saquon Barkley received a first-place vote and came in fourth. The Heisman Trophy victor will be named Saturday night, with Mayfield, Love and Louisville quarterback Lamar Jackson the three finalists. Jason White won in back-to-back years in 2003 and 2004, while Sam Bradford earned the title in 2008. I have to give a lot of the credit to my teammates and coaches, they are the reason that I am in position to win this award and I could not have done it without them.
Some of the nation's top college football players were honored Thursday night, as the Home Depot College Football Awards ceremony was held at the College Football Hall of Fame in Atlanta. "Obviously I'm very happy and thankful that I'm being recognized with this".
Mayfield played high school football in Austin, Texas, but did not receive a scholarship offer from the Longhorns.
Earlier in the day, Mayfield was selected as the Walter Camp Player of the Year by the Walter Camp Football Foundation.
Oklahoma tight end Mark Andrews won the Mackey Award, for top tight end. With the Sooners, he has become a three-year starter and one of the most productive passers in college football history. He also ranks second in passing touchdowns (41), third in total offense (357.7 ypg) and fourth in passing yards (333.8 per game).
Named the first Mackey Award victor in program history Wednesday, Andrews leads the nation's tight ends with his 906 receiving yards and receiving yards per game (69.7), and is second in yards per catch (15.6), third in receptions (58) and sixth in touchdown receptions (eight). Wishnowski was a finalist for this year's Ray Guy Award as well.
