The Heisman Trophy was originally known as the DAC trophy and was presented to its first winner, Jay Berwanger, in 1935. The trophy features a statue of a football player strait-arming a tackler and side-stepping. In 1936, following John W. Heisman’s death, the trophy was renamed. Heisman was well-known for being a strong American athlete and an inventive football mogul.

This year the trophy was awarded to Jameis Winston a quarterback from Florida State University. The trophy was awarded on December 14th broadcasted live from the Best Buy Theater in Times Square on ESPN.
