Montee Ball Would Vote Robert Griffin III for Heisman Trophy
Wisconsin running back Montee Ball is one of five players invited to New York City for the Heisman Trophy ceremony Saturday. The junior leads the country with 1,759 rushing yards and 32 rushing touchdowns. Even though his numbers are stellar, he says his vote would go to Baylor quarterback Robert Griffin III.
“I’d vote for RGIII,” Ball told the Scott Van Pelt Show.
“I kept telling people, if I don’t win it, I would be fine, I’m not going to be upset, disappointed or anything. Whoever wins it it’s well deserved.
“I’m just so honored just to be welcomed in New York with all the other great players in the country. This is something I always wanted as a child, and just to see it all happening is such a blessing.”
Ball has an excellent attitude headed into the weekend, and that’s probably because he’s not expected to win it. Most people guess it will be between Robert Griffin III and Andrew Luck, with Trent Richardson third and Ball fourth. Just like Ball said, whoever wins it’s well deserved.
I have no objection with Griffin winning it — he had an outstanding year and led Baylor to one of its best seasons in school history. He was pretty spectacular this year.
