2019 College football Heisman Watch

Week one Heisman Watch

It's that time of the year again, the Heisman watch is here. There are 8 very talented players on this list I have below. One who is not included who struggled week one, but could make a case includes Trevor Lawrence (QB Clemson), Justin Herbert (QB Oregon), KJ Costello (QB Stanford), Laviska Shenault (WR Colorado), Shea Patterson (QB Michigan), Khalil Tate (QB Arizona), Jake Fromm (QB Georgia), Isiah Hodgins (WR Oregon st.), Rondale Moore (WR Purdue), Jerry Jeudy (WR Alabama), Chuba Hubbard (RB Oklahoma St), Deandre Swift (RB Georgia ). If there is anyone I did not name that you think should be on list please feel free to reach out to me and let me know who you think should.

1. Jalen Hurts QB Oklahoma

QB Jalen hurts Oklahoma

With a total of 508 yards its hard to argue against his week one performance. Jalen with a doubtly posted Heisman numbers this week. On this Trek the transfer from Alabama was 20/23 for 336 yards passing ad another 176 yards and 3 TD's Rushing. Need I say anymore the Transfer from Bama truly shinned in his debut making a strong case for a Three-peat of Heisman wins for Oklahoma QB's.

2. Jonathon Taylor RB Wisconsin

RB Johnathon Taylor Wisconsin

Wisconsin had a pretty easy win against South Florida rolling past them 49-0. While that was going on Johnathon Taylor racked up 135 rushing yards and 2TD's with another 50 yards receiving and 2 TD's on his only two receptions. Taylor was constantly in the Heisman talks last year, and you should expect it again this year.

3. Travis Etienne RB Clemson

RB Travis Etienne Clemson

Etienne is someone who has been in the spotlight since his debut at Clemson. He is a hard runner who makes players. In the season opener against Georgia Tech, he carried the team. Trevor Lawrence the QB struggled this past week while Etienne RB shined. On only 12 carries he managed to amass 205 yards on only 12 carries he put up 3 TDs too.

4. Tua Tagaviola QB Alabama

QB Tua Tagaviola Alabama

A slow start to a strong finish, last year's Heisman runner up put on a show in the second half against Duke totaling 336 yards passing and 4 TDs going 26/31 in the process, posting a QBR of 94.1, so a pretty flawless day for the second-year starter.

5. Justin Fields QB Ohio st

QB Justin Fields Ohio St

Georgia gave away a good one in Justin Fields. Ohio St. debut posted pretty solid numbers throwing for a little over 200 yards and 4 TDs while rushing for another 60 yards and a TD. Needless to say, his day was much better than Georgia QB Jake Fromm who struggled a bit against Vandy.

6. Jacob Eason QB Washinton

QB Jacob Eason Washington


Another former Georgia QB, who also transferred after losing the job, Eason posted 350 yards passing and 4TDs going 27/36. He has a lot of potential to find himself in the Heisman talks this year. 13-ranked Washington could even make a playoff push.

7. Sam Ehlinger QB Texas

QB Sam Ehilinger Texas

Ehlinger may be able to get Texas back to its old heights with a noteworthy performance this week and a solid season last year. He is definetly someone to keep your eyes on. He threw for 276 yards and 4TDs this past week in a blowout win against Louisiana Tech.

8. Anthony Gordon QB Washington St

QB Anthony Gordon Washington St


Probably the least talked about person on this list, including the names I listed that didn't make the top 8, Gordon Threw for over 400 yards and 5 TD's in a blow out win over New Mexico St. Gordon looked very poised in this win and could do some big things this year depending on how successful they can be down the road. Washington St. is currently ranked 23 and doesn't play another ranked team until September 28th.

The Holidays are a time for being with friends and family and celebrating the birth of Christ, but sometimes we forget to acknowledge the other religions and what they celebrate.
