    I've only found 2 so far. John David Crow (Texas A&M) 1957 & Devonta Smith (Alabama) 2020.

    Was wondering today if there were any old timer Heismans that went to others schools, but were actually born in LA.

    Peyton Manning should have won it over Charles Woodson and Jerry Stovall should have won. Leonard Fournette was a shoein until he was stopped cold by Les Miles 70s approachvto offense

    Approach? That’s a kind way to Les’s offense.

    Fornette yards lost his heisman to Bama. They were the only ones to stop him that year

    Called power football. It died at LSU when Fawn Liebowitz took over & promptly lost to Troy.
