Saturday's Heisman Trophy ceremony in New York City is expected to end with an acceptance speech from LSU quarterback Joe Burrow
The 6-foot-4, 216-pound senior has thrown for 4,715 yards and 48 touchdowns against just six interceptions this season. His Tigers are 13-0, coming off a dominant win in the SEC Championship and headed to the College Football Playoff later this month.
For those who have watched Burrow in action this season at LSU, the highlight video above from his days at Athens (The Plains, Ohio)
will look familiar as he looks to push the ball downfield and makes athletic plays with his feet.
Despite his slow rise to stardom at the college level, Burrow was certainly no secret coming out of high school. He was considered a Top 300 prospect nationally by 247Sports after throwing for 4,445 yards and 63 touchdowns against just two interceptions in his final season at Athens.
Burrow also balled on the hardwood, averaging 19.3 points, 6.1 rebounds and 2.4 assists per game for the Bulldogs as a senior.
After signing with Ohio State, Burrow spent three years in Columbus before transferring to LSU.
