USC Quarterback Caleb Williams wins the 2022 Heisman Trophy
USC quarterback Caleb Williams won the 2022 Heisman Trophy on Saturday night, earning college football’s most treasured individual honor
The 20-year-old sophomore led the Trojans to an 11-2 record in his first season in Los Angeles after transferring from the University of Oklahoma.
Williams beat out the other three finalists — Ohio State’s C.J. Stroud, TCU’s Max Duggan and Georgia’s Stetson Bennett
In his acceptance speech, Williams hailed the three other finalists and credited his parents, teammates and coaches for him being able to win the award.
Williams said, “If you are willing to put in the work and surround yourself with positive people, you can achieve anything.”
Williams is the seventh Trojan to win the award and the first since quarterback Matt Leinart in 2004.
Williams’ Heisman award caps off a season in which USC ended up just short of the College Football Playoff.
Williams suffered a hamstring injury in the Trojans’ loss to the University of Utah in the Pac-12 championship game last week.
