1974 Heisman Trophy Winner: Archie Griffin

As a junior at Ohio State, Archie Griffin was named to every All-American team and was called "the greatest football player I've ever coached" by Woody Hayes.  Combining power, speed, and an uncanny ability to break four or five tackles on a single play, he smashed the all-time record for running backs in the Big Ten, amassing 4,064 yards. It would be the first Heisman Trophy won by the only two-time winner in the history of this prestigious award.
