When all of the dust settled, Oklahoma’s Jason White took home the 69th Heisman trophy award Saturday at the Yale Club in New York City. The Sooner gun-slinger was aided by getting a large number of votes prior to the Big 12 title game (over 50% of the ballots were cast prior to the opening kick). Chris Perry’s story of triumph in the face of adversity was one of a number of similar accounts revealed at the ceremony, but that did not dim the inspiring tone of the words of he and his mother (who is currently fighting breast cancer). In the end, it turned out to be a two-horse race for the award (between White and Fitzgerald)…with White taking home the gold.Final Heisman Voting tally:
