Heisman Hurdling Hero

Ever heard of a young football player named Robert Griffin… the third? Well he just won the NCAA College Football Heisman Trophy and has been called “the most interesting man in football.” Let’s find out why…

The number one reason why Robert is probably the most exciting man in football is because he is the fastest man in football. Robert isn’t just a football player at Baylor University; he also runs in track and field and has set the NCAA record for the 400m hurdles.

Quarterback Questions

You would think with Robert’s speed, that he is a running back or a wide receiver… but he’s a quarterback! And what a quarterback! Move over Michael Vick… Robert isn’t just fast, but he’s amazingly accurate, throwing over 70% in his Heisman Trophy year.

Sock it to me

But Robert isn’t just an amazing athlete, he is a very interesting guy with a great sense of humor. He has a very interesting sock collection full of cartoon characters. He likes to wear his Cookie Monster socks to the dinner table to show everyone how hungry he is.

Sensitive and Sentimental

And Robert even has a very soft and sensitive side. He plays guitar and this year he wrote and played a song for his girlfriend Rebecca as he proposed to her. Now that he’s famous, everyone wants to hear this song, but he has told the media that the song is very sacred and it will only be for the ears of his fiancée.
