Jordan Addison won the Bilitnikoff last night and deservedly so. It was a win for the “little guy” in every sense of the word, given that he was up against someone from Alabama, and also because he’s not the tallest dude on the block.
Addison and Pickett were also named Walter Camp 1st team All-Americans. Another win for Pitt.
I am still skeptical that Pickett will win the Heisman, given the politics that (I believe) go into it, but we all know that no player has meant more to his team, or has been more “outstanding”. But we are wearing Pitt-colored glasses, and even the infamous “fake slide” probably won’t be enough to boost Pitt’s loyal son over the Alabama Bryce Young Juggernaut (sadly).
For the record the official criteria for Heisman winners includes the words “Diligence, perseverance, and hard work”. If that isn’t Kenny Pickett I don’t know what is.
The Heisman Memorial Trophy is awarded annually to the most outstanding player in college football. Winners epitomize great ability combined with diligence, perseverance, and hard work. It is presented by the Heisman Trophy Trust in early December before the postseason bowl games.
Hail to Pitt
