“I don’t even know what to think right now. We have a lot of good players who make me look good.  It’s special.  This honor is all about my teammates and this team.  I wouldn’t be here if we didn’t have the team that we have.  This honor is for them.  I understand what Coach Smart means when he says that success comes to those who don’t look for it or are too busy working to look for it.  I have never thought about the Heisman.  I just wanted to play quarterback at Georgia.  I just wanted to play football.  I’m thinking of the players and people who have been in this with me.  Regardless of who wins, it’s a huge honor to be in this group.  The wideouts, tight ends, running backs, offensive line, defense, coaches – I wouldn’t have this opportunity without them so a ton of gratitude for them.”
