Rogers captures Heisman '0.~ ~.

~ N"..~,


NEW YORK (AP) - George Rogers,
the crunching runner who lifted the
University of South Carolina into major
college football's upper echelon, cap-
ped a true-life rags-to-riches drama
yesterday when he was named winner
of the 1980 Heisman Trophy as the
nation's top player.
The 6-foot-2, 225-pound Rogers, who
came to South Carolina from a life of
poverty in a small Georgia town and
probably will become an instant
millionaire in next spring's National
Football League draft, seemed happy
but awed and overwhelmed when he
was introduced to the media at the
Downtown Athletic Club, which for the
past 46 years has awarded the Heisman
"I DON'T know what to say," Rogers
repeated several times in the glare of
television lights and newsmen's pens.
"I just want to thank the coaches and
players. I'm so proud for my team-
mates. It was a shock to me because we
were 8-3 and most of the time it goes to
a player from a team with a better
Rogers won fairly decisively over
defensive- end Hugh Green of Pit-
tsburgh and Herschel Walker,

Georgia's sensational running back
whose third-place finish was the highest
ever for a freshman. Michigan
sophomore wide receiver Anthony Car-
ter finished in a tie for 10th.
Rogers received 216 first-place votes,
179 second-place ballots and 122 for
third place. With tabulation based on a
3-2-1 point system, he totaled 1,128 poin-
ts. Green had 179 firsts, 125 seconds and
74 thirds for 861 points while Walker's
score was 107-120-111-683.
ROGERS CARRIED four of the six
regions into which the Heisman voting
is divided - the Mid-Atlantic, South;
Southwest and -Far West. Green took
the Northeast while the Mid-West went
All-Big eTen
first, team
abounds with

for Purdue quarterback Mark Herr-
mann, who finished fourth over-all.
Rounding out the top 10 finishers
nationally were Brigham Young quar-
terback Jim McMahon (30-32-35-189),
Ohio State quarterback Art Schlichter
(18-34-36-158), Portland State quarter-
back Neil Lomax (10-11-17-69),
Nebraska tailback Jarvis Redwine (4-.
16-20-64), UCLA safety Kenny Easley
(5-5-19-44) and a three-way tie for 10th
among Carter (4-6-10-34), Baylor
linebacker Mike Singletary (5-6-7-34)
and Illinois quarterback Dave Wilson
Rogers led the nation in rushing with
1,781 yards as South Carolina compiled

an 8-3 record, matching the most vic-
tories in the school's history for the
second year in a row. He has gone over
100 yards in 21 consecutive games and
stands fourth on the all-time NCAA
ground-gaining chart with 4,958 yards.
Only Pitt's Tony Dorsett, Southern
Cal's Charles White and Ohio State's
Archie Griffin are ahead of him.
ROGERS SAID the "main thing on
my mind all season was winning. I
wasn't thinking about the Heisman
Trophy. I just tried to play as hard as I
could. There was a lot of pressure and
I'm glad it's over."
