NEW YORK, N. Tuukka Rask Jersey .Y. - Marcus Mariota wrote it all down, every word of his Heisman Trophy acceptance speech. It was a good thing, too, because getting through it might have been tougher than sprinting away from a linebacker or tossing a touchdown pass for Oregons understated star.The junior quarterback became the Ducks first Heisman winner going away Saturday night, capping a three-year climb to college footballs most prestigious individual award.Im humbled to be standing here today, Mariota said moments after he was announced as the winner.Mariota isnt a bigger talker, but he steadily worked through his speech, thanking his teammates, teachers, friends and his home state of Hawaii. He finally hit a snag when it came time to thank his mother and father. He needed to take two deep breaths and still he got choked up.I had to give thanks to so many people because where I am today, its all do to all those people, Mariota said later. Its hard not to get emotional. Its been a long journey. My emotions got the best of me.A pinpoint passer with wide-receiver speed, Mariota came into this season as the favourite to win the 80th Heisman and delivered a performance that turned the presentation ceremony at a theatre in Times Square into a foregone conclusion.Mariota had twice as many points (2,534) as second-place finisher Melvin Gordon (1,250), the record-breaking running back from Wisconsin. The other finalist, Alabama receiver Amari Cooper, was third.Mariota received the second-highest percentage of possible points (90.92) in Heisman history, behind only Ohio State quarterback Troy Smith, who had 91.63 in 2006. Southern California tailback Reggie Bush received 91.77 per cent of possible points in 2005, but his victory was later vacated for violating NCAA rules.Mariota, the first Hawaii native to win the Heisman, has accounted for a Pac-12-record 53 touchdowns (38 passing, 14 rushing and one receiving) while directing the Ducks warp-speed spread offence.In Hawaii, if one person is successful, the entire state is successful, he said, draped in leis at his news conference.It will be a matchup of Heisman-winning quarterbacks in the College Football Playoffs Rose Bowl semifinal Jan. 1 with Mariota and the Ducks facing Florida State and Jameis Winston.Im just looking forward to getting back on the field and playing again, Mariota said. We do have a team goal.In an era when so many Heisman winners seemingly come from out of nowhere — the last two were the first freshmen winners — Mariotas rise was slow and steady.Three of the last four Heisman winners were in their first seasons as starters, including Cam Newton, who won the award in his only season at Auburn after transferring from a junior college. Before Newton, three straight sophomores won the award (Tim Tebow of Florida, Sam Bradford of Oklahoma and Mark Ingram of Alabama). Tebow was the first sophomore winner.Like Texas A&M quarterback Johnny Manziel and Winston, the previous two winners, Mariota started as a redshirt freshman. It quickly established himself as a star, but unlike Johnny Football and Famous Jameis, Mariota wasnt the face of college football in his first season.In his second season he put up numbers that rivaled those of Heisman finalist quarterbacks Winston, Manziel, AJ McCarron and Jordan Lynch, but when it came time to vote for the Heisman, Mariota was forgotten. He didnt even finish in the top 10 in 2013.This season Mariota would not be ignored.He leads the nation in passer rating (186.2), is fifth in total offence (342.5 yards per game) and has led the Ducks to a Pac-12 title with a chance to play for their first national championship.Of course, patience and poise have defined Mariotas career. He didnt start for his high school team until he was a senior — then led Saint Louis in Honolulu to a state title.A quiet leader with a nice-guy reputation, Mariota brought no off-field baggage to this Heisman ceremony. After a season beset by off-field troubles, including a school hearing into sexual assault allegations, Winston wasnt a finalist this time around. He finished sixth.Oregons only Heisman finalists before Mariota were quarterback Joey Harrington in 2001 and running back LaMichael James in 2010.If you have your punch list of things as a program, the most iconic individual award would be the Heisman Trophy. But like Marcus said, I know hed trade all that to win as a team, Oregon coach Mark Helfrich said.For Harrington, Oregon, with Nikes help, put up a billboard in Times Square to promote their Heisman candidate.Oregon didnt need a billboard to get the word out about Mariota. His play provided all the publicity he needed___Follow Ralph D. Russo at www.Twitter.com/ralphDrusoAP Kevan Miller Jersey . Vonn had another scary moment at Saturdays World Cup downhill in Val dIsere, ending up clutching her knee in pain after losing her balance and missing a gate. But she gave a reassuring answer shortly afterward, saying no new damage had been done to the surgically repaired knee, and that her plans for the Sochi Olympics were still intact. David Pastrnak Jersey . Granada defender Diego Mainz barged into the back of Villa to send the Spain striker to the ground inside the area and Costa stepped up to the spot to score his 12th league goal in the 38th minute. Costa showed no effects of the news that his Brazilian citizenship may be revoked after he elected to play for Spains national team, as the forward was a constant threat for Atletico and forced several saves from goalkeeper Roberto. http://www.thebostonbruinshockey.com/jakub-zboril-hockey-jersey/ . In the Brewers six games this season, no starter has allowed more than three runs. "We see the guy in front of us do a great job and we want to do even better," Gallardo said after the Brewers beat the Red Sox 4-0 on Sunday, his second straight scoreless start.ASHBURN, Va. - Washington Redskins safety Tanard Jackson has been suspended for a fourth time for violating the NFLs substance abuse policy. The league announced Wednesday that Jackson has been suspended indefinitely without pay. Jackson was also suspended indefinitely in August 2012. He was given what was expected to be his final chance to play again when the NFL reinstated him in May. The Redskins re-signedd him, and he said during a spring practice that this time would be different in part because of the "humbling experience" of having to work in a warehouse during his suspension. Riley Nash Jersey. The 28-year-old Jackson was suspended twice while playing for the Tampa Bay Buccaneers: four games in 2009 and for 12 months starting in September 2010. He first signed with the Redskins in April 2012. Cheap NFL Jerseys Wholesale Jerseys Wholesale NFL Jerseys Jerseys From China Wholesale NFL Jerseys Cheap NFL Jerseys Cheap Jerseys ' ' '
