Jarvis Jones for Heisman?
The Georgia junior outside linebacker is listed along with Southern California‚Äôs Matt Barkley, West Virginia‚Äôs Geno Smith and three others by ESPN.com‚Äôs Gene Wojciechowski as players who could be ‚Äúseated in the front row at Best Buy Theater‚Äù for the Heisman Trophy ceremony in New York.
‚ÄúThat‚Äôll be big,‚Äù Jones said. ‚ÄúI never thought about that one. That would be big. I‚Äôm doing everything I can in a team form and everything I‚Äôve got in preparation. ‚Ä¶Just to be in New York, man, it would be a great accomplishment. It‚Äôs hard for defensive players to get that award. Just to be up among some of the Heisman finalists, that would be a great accomplishment for me.‚Äù
Jones certainly is raking in the awards after his dominant showing against Missouri.
The latest on Tuesday were the Chuck Bednarik and Bronko Nagurski players of the week. He already was selected as the Walter Camp player of the week and the Southeastern Conference defensive player of the week.
‚ÄúPeople talk about big time players make big plays in the biggest games, and that‚Äôs what he did,‚Äù Richt said.
