    How about Keenan Reynolds at Navy? Favorable schedule. Two marquee games against tOSU and ND. He set records last year for rushing TD’s in a game both for a season and in a game (by a QB). Only 4th player ever to break 30 TD’s in a season.

    After all, wouldn’t the Heisman trust love to have a guy in uniform up there after the shade that’s been thrown on the trophies of Winston, Manziel, and Newton?

    He’s not going to win. But he could go 10-2 and wind up flying to NYC right after Navy’s 12th win in a row over Army.

    I agree that Reynolds is a heckuva player and you may be right about the scenario. But I think it’s going to be tough to duplicate that 31 touchdown mark.

    But I am definitely keeping an eye out and reserve the right to add him to the list once the fall begins.
