The race for the Heisman always takes interesting turns over the course of the season to see who wins the award as the best player in college football. I have no problem with the three finalists, Clemson QB Deshaun Watson, Stanford RB Christian McCaffery and the award winner in Alabama RB Derrick Henry. But I do feel that they should invite more finalists and most notably, Navy QB Keenan Reynolds. While Reynolds best statistical season was 2013, his 2015 number were still outstanding and he now holds the career mark for rushing TD's in Division I with 85. While the Heisman is supposed to be for the top player of the year, I think there is room for players for career achievement who have been in the discussion for the award to be on the stage for the ceremony. Reynolds nearly led the Midshipmen to a New Years Six Bowl and what I find most impressive about his career numbers is that Navy is completely focused on running the ball with their triple option offense. Defenses know it and that Reynolds will keep it a lot of the time and he is still almost unstoppable.
