In July, Joe Schad of ESPN.com reported that Titans quarterback Vince Young doesn’t want the Heisman Trophy that may be stripped from Saints tailback Reggie Bush.
On Monday, Vince Young told ESPN that, to the contrary, the former Longhorn wants to hook the hardware.
Young said, via CFT. “But he won it fair and square definitely, and it’s much
respect to Reggie, man. He had a great career and he’s already won a
Super Bowl before me. I’m already mad about that.
definitely the Heisman Trophy winner for that year. But if they send it
over to me I am not going to say no to it.”
It’s unlikely that this ever will occur. Yahoo! Sports reported last week that the Heisman Trophy Trust is expect to strip the trophy from Bush and to not award it to anyone else.
Vince Young’s mother recently said that the Young family doesn’t want Reggie’s Heisman. So, basically, it’s good to know that Florio Jr. isn’t the only kid who doesn’t listen to his parents.
