Only one player has won a Heisman Trophy twice in the history of the award. But another has a very good chance of accomplishing that same feat.
Though some have been close, only Ohio State’s Archie Griffin has ever earned the accolade twice.
Young has the talent and supporting cast to do so this upcoming year. Nonetheless, others will also have strong cases.

Ohio State quarterback CJ Stroud has the best college football odds to win the Heisman Trophy at +200. While Young is second, USC quarterback Caleb Williams is third at +800.
