Miami QB Gino Torretta wins Heisman

December 13, 1992

Gino Torretta, who led the University of Miami to a national championship last season and will win another if the top-ranked Hurricanes beat No. 2 Alabama in the sugar bowl on Jan. 1, won the Heisman trophy yesterday over two running backs -- Marshall Faulk of San Diego State and Garrison Hearst of Georgia.

Faulk finished second, 320 points behind Torretta, and Hearst was third, trailing the winner by 418 points.

Torretta received 310 first-place votes and 1,400 points in balloting by the media and former Heisman winners. Faulk got 164 first-place votes and 1,080 points, and Hearst received 140 first-place votes and 982.
