Football - Tashard and the Heisman

Fox Sports on Tashard Choice and his Heisman potential:

18. RB Tashard Choice, Sr., Georgia Tech

Fund a campaign: Choice steps outside Calvin Johnson's shadow one year after leading the ACC in rushing and going for more than 100 yards in nine of his last 10 games. A local phenomenon for much of the season, he amassed some important national style points by shredding West Virginia for a career-best 169 yards in the Gator Bowl.

Buy new wrestling mats: If an all-timer like Johnson labored to crack the top 10 last year, imagine how difficult it'll be for Choice, a very good, yet still pretty anonymous back. Unless Tech is in the hunt for another ACC title, he'll struggle to capture the attention of voters outside the southern region.
