There might not have been a singular player with a better season than Florida State quarterback and Heisman Trophy winner Jameis Winston, but there were many who put on terrific performances in their own right.
In College Station in September, who could forget Texas A&M’s Johnny Manziel spinning and running around Alabama’s defense and launching the ball down field where Mike Evans made remarkable grab after remarkable grab?
There was Boston College’s Andre Williams cracking the 2,000-yard rushing barrier and Auburn’s Tre Mason gashing SEC defenses on the ground and Ohio State’s Carlos Hyde providing punch to Braxton Miller’s finesse.
And, still, did you spend enough time watching Ka’Deem Carey at Arizona? If not, head to YouTube.
We had exceptional defensive ends in Missouri’s Michael Sam and Texas’ Jackson Jeffcoat, among others, wreaking havoc in pursuit.
