Alabama senior quarterback AJ McCarron was named one of the six Heisman trophy finalists on Monday.
McCarron will join Florida State quarterback Jameis Winston, Northern Illinois quarterback Jordan Lynch, Texas A&M quarterback Johnny Manziel, Auburn running back Tre Mason and Boston College running Andre Williams in New York City for the trophy presentation on December 14th. ESPN’s coverage of the event begins at 7:00 PM (central).
McCarron was also named the 2013 Johnny Unitas Golden Arm Award winner, along with being named one of Alabama’s permanent team captains and the Offensive MVP of the team as well as an AP All SEC Honorable Mention.
Former Alabama running back Mark Ingram is the only Alabama player to win the award, back in 2009. In 2011 Trent Richardson was also named a finalist for the award.
