1975 Heisman Trophy Winner: Archie Griffin

As a senior, Archie Griffin extended his record of consecutive 100-plus yard games to 31, his overall yardage to 5,176, and became the only player ever to win the Heisman twice.  Griffin was exceptional in so many ways.  He was magnificently consistent, grinding out 100-plus yards week in, and week out.  And he was a leader on the field and off, despite his modesty.  But most of all, Archie reflected the high standards of the Griffin family, which exemplified hard work, devotion to excellence, and resilience.
