Thank you to all of my fans and teammates for the consideration! However, like I stated previously I do not need a trophy or to be named a finalist to define me as a player. I’ve earned the respect from my teammates and coaches, therefore, at the end of the day that’s the only thing that matters! Congratulations to all the deserving Heisman finalists! Once again thank you! #WeAre
