Quarterback of Louisiana State University Jayden Daniels received the 2023 Heisman Trophy on Saturday evening.

Daniels defeated other three finalists: quarterback Bo Nix of Oregon, quarterback Michael Penix Jr. of Washington, and wide receiver Marvin Harrison Jr. of Ohio State.

He is the third player in LSU history to win the most coveted individual award in college football.

Before Daniels, Joe Burrow received the Heisman Trophy in 2019. After the win, Daniels thanked his coaches, teammates and family.

He finished his senior season at LSU with 3,812 passing yards, four interceptions, and 40 touchdowns.

The 22-year-old also led the country in total offense with 4,946 yards in 12 games.

Following a victory against Florida in November, Daniels became the first player to rush more than 200 yards and pass more than 350 yards in a single game.

Against Georgia State a week later, he tied LSU’s record for the most touchdowns in a game with eight touchdowns.

Besides winning the Heisman Trophy, Daniels marked his name as one of five players in SEC history to make 50 touchdowns or more in a season.

Other players are Burrow (63), Tim Tebow (55), Cam Newton (51), and Bryce Young (50).

And just like Daniels, four of them were also named Heisman Trophy winners.
