Can Tajh Boyd win the Heisman?
The simple answer is yes. Tajh has proven to the country that he is arguably the best overall quarterback in the nation. He can run and throw the ball, and has one of the best (and definitely the fastest) receiving corps in the country.
Tajh recently received 105 of 120 votes for the preseason ACC player of the year. As the quarterback of the team, much of Clemson’s success rests in the hands (or should I say hand) of Tajh Boyd. Number 10 is looking to bring home not only the ACC title, but is also looking to do everything in his power to lead the Tigers to an undefeated season in hopes of having a shot at the BCS National Championship game.
The senior signal caller is regarded by many as either the #1 or #2 quarterback to come out of the draft this year with his only competition being Louisville quarterback Teddy Bridgewater. Alongside Texas A&M quarterback and 2012 Heisman winner Johnny Maziel, Boyd is considered one of the best dual threat quarterbacks in the nation, and is even expected by ESPN analyst and former Super Bowl champion Kevin Carter as the frontrunner to win this year’s Heisman trophy award.
Boyd also only needs 12 wins to become the all-time most winningest quarterback in Clemson history. Talk about motivation.
“So all I have to do is: Win 12 games, become the most winningest quarterback in school history, and make a run at the BCS National Title and win the Heisman while I’m at it?”
“That’s right Tajh.”
“Sounds easy enough to me. Let’s do it.”
With all the motivation of being the all-time record holder for wins as a quarterback along with being a high draft pick and being in contention for the Heisman, watch out for Tajh Boyd to have an incredible senior season.
