The 2022 college football season is winding down as the UNC football program has two regular season games left and the Atlantic Coast Conference title game against Clemson.
One constant this year for the Tar Heels has been the play of quarterback Drake Maye. The redshirt freshman has been fantastic for UNC as they are off to a 9-1 start overall with Maye throwing for 3,412 yards, 34 touchdowns, and just 3 interceptions while completing 70.1 percent of his attempts. Maye has also added 584 rushing yards and 5 touchdowns.
Those stats are good enough to be in consideration for the Heisman Trophy and the Tar Heels have officially launched his campaign:

While the national media is starting to give more respect to Maye and his chances for the Heisman, players like CJ Stroud, Bryce Young, Caleb Williams, Blake Corum, and Hendon Hooker are getting more recognition as the weeks continue on.
How close will Maye get to receiving an invite to New York? With three games left, he could use a big ‘Heisman’ moment to convince the voters.
