Saturday on ESPN (8 p.m. ET), the Heisman Trophy fraternity will welcome another member during the presentation ceremony in New York City.
The anticipation and exposure of the awarding of the 2014 Heisman will be a lot different than in 1989, when then-University of Houston quarterback Andre Ware won the balloting. Ware could not attend the ceremony that year; his Cougars had a game scheduled against Rice that afternoon.
Now an SEC Network college football analyst, Ware shares his thoughts on how the Heisman process has changed through the years in the video above. He also discusses the kinship he has with fellow ESPN college football analysts and Heisman winners Desmond Howard and Tim Tebow, among other things.
The 2014 Heisman Trophy “visited” ESPN’s studios on Wednesday and spent time on set and off with Ware during his various spots on ESPN platforms, such as College Football Live.
