Richardson Stands Tall In Big Apple

Alabama tailback Trent Richardson has the body of a Clydesdale yet runs with the swiftness of a thoroughbred. Hoping for a victory in the race to win the Heisman Memorial Trophy Saturday evening at the Best Buy Theater in New York City's Times Square, the Pensacola native has bludgeoned defenders with power and sped by would be tacklers regularly.

So far through twelve games he has produced the second highest single season rushing total in school history, galloping through opponents for 1,583 yards on 263 attempts. Named the Associated Press SEC Offensive Player of the Year, he established a new school rushing touchdown record for a season with twenty surpassing Shaun Alexander's nineteen.

Friday afternoon in the city of tall buildings, Richardson addressed a roomful of media members including ‘BAMA Magazine/BamaMag.com at the New York Marriott Marquis located at Times Square. The school's first recipient of the Doak Walker Award, symbolizing the nation's top running back, spoke of the dream to win college football's most prestigious honor as the most outstanding player - the Heisman Memorial Trophy.
