Alabama coach Nick Saban isn’t the only one championing quarterback AJ McCarron for the Heisman Trophy, McCarron’s mother and girlfriend also chimed in on Twitter.
McCarron’s two leading ladies – mother Dee Dee Bonner and girlfriend Katherine Webb – tweeted out an article on collegesports.net that goes into great detail as to why McCarron, Alabama’s two-time national championship-winning quarterback, should be the leading candidate for the coveted bronze statue.
Webb ultimately deleted the tweet, but it’s clear where her allegiances lie. And quite honestly, she has a point. As Saban noted Saturday, McCarron wins big games and doesn’t make mistakes. His stats might not be a eye-popping as some of the other Heisman competitors, but his steady play should count for something.
We agreed in our Heisman Watch on Monday that McCarron should at least be ion the conversation.
At the very least, Heisman ratings would be greatly helped by having Webb in attendance.
