football name nfl player

1954-

American football player

Archie Griffin's name will forever be linked to his improbable winning of two Heisman Trophies during the 1975 and 1976 seasons. To capture one of these honors is itself enough to etch a college football player's name into the book of legends. In a sports climate where most winners of the Heisman immediately go on to lucrative careers in the National Football League (NFL), Griffin returned for a final season, graduated a quarter early, and then went on to the NFL.

Also, players did not leave early for the NFL back then. It was not even legal. Herschel Walker was the first guy to do that and it was not to the NFL, but the USFL. Then, the NFL, being uncreative that they are, decided they had better jump on board the bandwagon instead of losing these juniors to the USFL and they gave in and made it OK to take a college junior or somebody that had been in college for three years including a redshirt.

There is some incorrect info in this article. It says that Archie led his high school team to a city championship in 1972 his junior year in high school. Archie was a freshman at Ohio State in the 1972 season.
Plus, the bigger error was his Heisman winning seasons. Tony Dorsett won the Heisman in 1976 and Archie won them in 1974 and 1975.

I write a blog about college football at http://collegefootballcrazy.com and I was trying to find more info on Archie's high school playing days.

Regardless of the errors, you still did good work here.
