Is Keith Price a legitimate Heisman Trophy candidate in 2012?
A writer for Lost Lettermen makes that case today, saying he thinks Price can be the Robert Griffin III of 2012.
There are some interesting comparisons made there. Ultimately, though, wins are as much of a factor as the rest of it — you basically need at least nine to even be in the real conversation. What stories like the above show, though, is that Price put himself on the radar with last season’s breakout campaign.
Now, if the Heisman is to be a legit goal for Price, it’s up to him playing well and leading UW to some high-profile wins — he won’t lack for chances with Washington playing at LSU and Oregon and against USC and Stanford at home in the first six weeks of the season.
