The premier award in college football has largely been held hostage by quarterbacks and running backs for the better part of the last three decades. Alabama wide receiver DeVonta Smith changed all of that Tuesday night as he was named winner of the 2020 Heisman Trophy, becoming the first pass catcher to be named college football’s best player in 29 years.
Smith beat out three fellow Heisman finalists — all quarterbacks — in Clemson’s Trevor Lawrence (second), Alabama’s Mac Jones (third) and Florida’s Kyle Trask (fourth) for the nation’s top honor. In doing so, he is the first wide receiver to win the Heisman Trophy since Michigan’s Desmond Howard in 1991 and just the fourth ever at his position.
The United States stands on top of the junior hockey world once again. Team USA secured its fifth World Junior Championship gold medal on Tuesday, beating Team Canada by a final score of 2-0.
Canada was heavily favored heading into the gold medal game — and for good reason. They had outscored opponents 41-4 and went without giving up an even-strength goal in the first six games of the tournament. But the Americans saved their best game of the tournament for last and delivered an outstanding wire-to-wire performance in order to secure gold — the program’s first since 2017.
Fifteen players are now one step closer to Canton, Ohio and a gold jacket. On Tuesday, the modern-era finalists for the Pro Football Hall of Fame were announced as the Hall’s Selection Committee narrowed the list of 25 semifinalists that were announced back in November. Four of these players are getting the nod as a finalist in their first year of eligibility: quarterback Peyton Manning, wide receiver Calvin Johnson, defensive back Charles Woodson and defensive end Jared Allen.
These 15 finalists will be presented to the 48-member Pro Football Hall of Fame Selection Committee on the Saturday leading up to Super Bowl LV. There, they will reach a determination of who will cross that final hurdle to get in.
