The Heisman Memorial Trophy Award (usually known colloquially as the Heisman Trophy or the Heisman), is awarded annually to the most outstanding player in college football in the United States whose performance best exhibits the pursuit of excellence with integrity. Winners epitomize great ability combined with dillegence, perseverance, and hard work. It is presented by the Heisman Trophy Trust in early December before the postseason bowl games.
The award was created in 1935 as the Downtown Athletic Club trophy and renamed the following year after the death of the Club's athletic director, John Heisman, whose roles in college athletics included football player; head football, basketball, and baseball coach; and athletic director. It is the oldest of several overall awards in college football, including the Maxwell Award, Walter Camp Award, and the AP Player of the Year. The Heisman and the AP Player of the Year honor the most outstanding player, while the Maxwell and Walter Camp awards recognize the best player, and the Archie Griffin Award recognizes the most valuable player.
Archie Mason Griffin (born August 21, 1954) is a former American football running back. Griffin played seven seasons in the NFL with the Cincinnati Bengals. He is college football's only two-time Heisman Trophy winner. Griffin won four Big Ten Conference titles with the Ohio State Buckeyes and was the first player ever to start in four Rose Bowls.

The Heisman Curse is a term coined to reference a two-part assertion of a negative future for the winning player. The "curse" supposes that any college football player who wins the Heisman Trophy will lose his subsequent bowl game. Since 2000, only six Heisman winners (Carson Palmer, Matt Leinart, Mark Ingram, Cam Newton, Robert Griffin III, and Johnny Manziel) have gone on to win their following bowl game, with Leinart's win at the 2005 Orange Bowl being later revoked and removed from records due to multiple rule violations by USC. The trend of post-award failure has garnered the attention of the mainstream media. Additionally, the Heisman Curse asserts that in most cases a Heisman winner will have either a poor career in the NFL, or in fact not even see such a football career at all.
The "curse" does not imply that only Heisman winners have failed careers, only the irony behind college football's best underperforming after the award is given. However, while there are numerous counts of players who underperformed after winning the award, an equal number of players have gone on to see great success, evidence that the "curse" is more of an amusement than a reality.
Harold Leroy Enarson (born May 24, 1919 in Villisca, Iowa died July 31, 2006 in Washington) was the 9th President of The Ohio State University . Prior to joining Ohio State, he served as the first President of Cleveland State University, from 1966 to 1972.
After leaving the university, Enarson commented that he would be remembered most for his firing of popular Ohio State Buckeyes football coach Woody Hayes after Hayes punched an opposing player in the throat, though events such as Archie Griffin's two Heisman Trophies or graduate Paul Flory's Nobel Prize were highpoints. Ohio State President Karen Holbrook said of Enarson, "Today, Ohio State’s programs are stronger and its reputation more eminent, thanks to Harold Enarson."
In journalism, a human interest story is a feature story that discusses a person or people in an emotional way. It presents people and their problems, concerns, or achievements in a way that brings about interest, sympathy or motivation in the reader or viewer.
Human interest stories may be "the story behind the story" about an event, organization, or otherwise faceless historical happening, such as about the life of an individual soldier during wartime, an interview with a survivor of a natural disaster, a random act of kindness or profile of someone known for a career achievement.
