Jason White among five Heisman finalists
NEW YORK — Jason White has a chance to join Archie Griffin as a two-time Heisman Trophy winner.
White, the Oklahoma quarterback who won last year’s Heisman, was chosen Wednesday as one of five finalists for college football’s most prestigious individual title.
Joining White for Saturday’s award ceremony in New York will be his Oklahoma teammate Adrian Peterson, Southern California teammates Matt Leinart and Reggie Bush, and Utah quarterback Alex Smith.
Among Heisman contenders who did not make the top 5 were Texas running back Cedric Benson, Auburn quarterback Jason Campbell and California teammates Aaron Rodgers and J.J. Arrington. Griffin, Ohio State’s great running back, won the Heisman in 1974 and 1975 and is the only two-time winner.
White was the favorite for last year’s Heisman and beat out Pittsburgh wide receiver Larry Fitzgerald and Mississippi quarterback Eli Manning. This time, the race appears too close to call. White and Leinart, USC’s quarterback, have put up similar numbers while leading their teams to 12-0 records and a matchup in the Orange Bowl for the national championship. White comes to town after passing for 2,961 yards and 33 touchdown, and in a much better mood than last year. A week before the ’03 Heisman ceremony, the Sooners were upset by Kansas State 35-7 in the Big 12 title game and White had his worst game of the season.
