Mariota wins Heisman

[12/18/14] NEW YORK >> In its 80th year, the Heisman Memorial Trophy is Hawaii-bound after Saint Louis School graduate Marcus Mariota was awarded the iconic bronze statue today on national TV.

The University of Oregon quarterback won the award, symbolic of being the nation's top college football player, over two other finalists -- Alabama wide receiver Amari Cooper and Wisconsin running back Melvin Gordon -- receiving 90.92 percent of the total points, second highest all-time behind Ohio State's Troy Smith.

"You dream about the Heisman, every player does, but to actually receive it is a real dream come true," Mariota said. "I feel blessed and honored."

Mariota is the first player from Hawaii, and the first for the University of Oregon, to win the award.
