Heisman Finalist Amari Cooper Posts Humble Note On Instagram, Is Excited To Visit NYC For First Time

Monday night, it was announced that there will be three Heisman Trophy finalists this year - Oregon's Marcus Mariota, Wisconsin's Melvin Gordon, and Alabama's Amari Cooper. Cooper, a wideout for the Crimson Tide, is having one of the greatest seasons in college football history, racking up 115 catches, 1,656 receiving yards and 14 touchdowns. Monday night, after hearing the news, Cooper took to Instagram to post a humble note about the recognition. He also claims that he's never been to New York City, and is thus excited.

While Mariota is expected to win the award, Cooper has an outside shot. We'll find out this Saturday who takes home the hardware.
