In the hours before they handed out this year's Heisman Trophy, Navy quarterback Keenan Reynolds dusted the snow off his shoulder pads and engineered the Midshipmen's 12th consecutive victory over Army. It wasn't his most artistic performance - and who could have expected a masterpiece on such an ugly afternoon at Lincoln Financial Field - but it completed an impressive regular season by a sophomore quarterback who might have been invited to New York as a finalist for college football's biggest individual prize if he played for a big-conference school.

CAMDEN, N.J. -- The news hit hard, even in this city where gunfire is hardly news at all: There was Mike Rozier, famous ex-football player and native son, standing on a drug corner last November at 3 a.m., big holes blown through his chest by a .357 Magnum, his life -- just like in the movies -- passing before his eyes.No one knows exactly what happened on that drug corner last November, only that, if choreographed, there'd be no "Chariots of Fire" music. There was an altercation. Somebody had a gun. Was it a drug deal gone bad or just a guy so messed up on booze and drugs that he opened fire on his friends?

Glenn Davis, the Heisman Trophy-winning "Mr. Outside" on Army's national championship football teams of the mid-1940s, died yesterday, his son Ralph told the Los Angeles Times. Davis was 80. Davis, recognized as one of the finest all-around athletes to come out of southern California, died of complications from prostate cancer at his home in La Quinta, Calif. A 5-foot-9, 170-pound halfback, Davis teamed with fullback Felix "Doc" Blanchard, "Mr. Inside," when the U.S. Military Academy was a college football power during and just after World War II. Army, going undefeated, won national titles in 1944 and '45, then finished a close second to Notre Dame after those teams had played to a 0-0 tie at Yankee Stadium in 1946.

NEW YORK -- Ty Detmer's record numbers finally convinced the nation that a Brigham Young quarterback with a strong arm was more deserving of the Heisman Trophy than another Notre Dame flanker.Detmer won the 56th Heisman Memorial Trophy over Rocket Ismail, presented last night at the Downtown Athletic Club, 1,482 votes to 1,177. Ismail did not even win the Midwest, one of six regions divided for voting, where a strong Ismail showing was predicted to make this one of the closest votes in Heisman history.

While much of their focus has revolved around quarterbacks Tim Couch, Daunte Culpepper, Donovan McNabb and Akili Smith, they also have wondered about the chance to grab Williams.

Hurricanes blow 'em away Matt Murschel Orlando Sentinel The 2001 Miami Hurricanes were by far the best national champion in the BCS era. They ran over just about everybody, including a talented Nebraska team in the Rose Bowl. Offensively, the 'Canes were led by quarterback Ken Dorsey, who was a Heisman Trophy finalist in both 2001 and 2002. With Clinton Portis, Frank Gore and Willis McGahee at running back and future NFL stars Andre Johnson and Jeremy Shockey lining up as Dorsey's top targets, the Hurricanes put up more than 42 points per game.

Andrew Luck may be NFL-ready, but the Stanford quarterback — who could end up joining Peyton Manning and the Indianapolis Colts — said Friday that he would have no problem being drafted by a team with an established quarterback. "I'm sure it would be a positive. I'm sure it would all work out, whatever the situation is," said Luck, who was in Baltimore to accept the Johnny Unitas Golden Arm Award, which goes to college football's top senior or fourth-year junior quarterback.

The mystery of Ricky Williams turned out not to be a mystery at all. World traveler, former Heisman Trophy winner and onetime NFL rushing champion, the Ravens' newest running back was anything but enigmatic Tuesday in his first meeting with the press. He was insightful, reflective and engaging, seemingly content with life. In an 8-minute interview conducted under a tent top in the middle of a downpour, Williams acknowledged past indiscretions but avowed few regrets. He said he was still a rebel at heart, but one who had learned to channel the rebelliousness.

Nick Tilson was happy enough Tuesday to be at the annual meeting of Under Armour, his favorite sportswear company, but the 11-year-old was in for an even bigger treat. "Who is your favorite college player?" Under Armour CEO Kevin Plank asked Tilson, singling him out of the crowd. "It was Cam Newton," Tilson said, astutely remembering that Newton, Heisman Trophy winner and former quarterback at Auburn University, had recently been picked up by the Carolina Panthers NFL team and was no longer a college player.

The race for the Heisman Trophy heads into Saturday's ceremony as perhaps the tightest in the 67-year history of the award. Five finalists were named yesterday to attend the awards ceremony in New York, and strong arguments can be made for each. Below, reporters from various Tribune Publishing newspapers make the cases for these players. Brad Banks, Iowa If Iowa coach Kirk Ferentz had a Heisman Trophy vote, it would go to Hawkeyes quarterback Brad Banks. No surprise there. But there are a slew of other qualified candidates, so Ferentz urged voters to weigh the impact Banks made in his first year as a Division I-A starter.
