11/23/1991 - Hello Heisman
Desmond Howard was well on his way to winning the Heisman Award when his Michigan team faced arch-rival Ohio State. Michigan crushed the Buckeyes, 31-3, and Howard notched another achievement with a 93-yard punt return. On the play, he eluded several defenders and was by himself as he entered the end zone. In perfect harmony with Keith Jackson's call of "Hello Heisman," Howard struck a perfect pose of the Heisman trophy.
The national spotlight elevated his Heisman campaign and he eventually won the award with 85% of the votes, a record at the time. Howard's NFL career didn't quite live up to his collegiate tenure; his best moment came in Super Bowl XXXI, where, as a member of the Packers, he was named the game's MVP.
