NEW YORK — Hand it to Derrick Henry.
Alabama’s bulldozer of a tailback with the super-sized workload won the Heisman Trophy on Saturday night after carrying the Crimson Tide offense for most of the season.
“I’m just so thankful to have this trophy,” Henry said. “It’s just a blessing and an honor.”
The 6-foot-3, 242-pound Henry is the second Alabama player to win the Heisman, joining running back Mark Ingram. Since Ingram won the award in 2009, it had gone to five straight quarterbacks.
