Meet everyone who has won the prestigious Heisman Trophy, which is given every year to the most outstanding college football player.

From Jay Berwanger to Derrick Henry, everyone who has won the prestigious Heisman Memorial Trophy, which is given every year by the Heisman Trophy Trust to the most outstanding college football player. See total points for both the winner and runner-up for every year, as well as the margin of victory for each race.
