My name is not only Archie Griffin, it's two-time Heisman trophy winner Archie Griffin. Once you win the award it's with you for the rest of your life, and I realize that and I'm proud of that. It changed my life.Griffin received the Heisman Trophy as a junior in 1974 and again in 1975 -- the only player to win the award twice.
To me, the Heismans symbolize (how great of a team we were) because that success could not happen individually without being part of a great team. I was fortunate to be in the right place at the right time with the right people. I had the opportunity to play with guys who made me look good.
