Yes, you read the title correctly. I am saying it now, and mark my words, Appalachian's Junior QB Armanti Edwards is on the list for the Heisman this year. And please do not give me this crap he is a ONLY I-AA or Subdivision QB...he is a phenom. The 6'0" 175 Junior, pretty much was overlooked by the larger BCS schools due to his smaller build. Edwards is fast and has been setting records left and right. He is not afraid to jump into a pile or run the ball to move the chains.

Edwards gained the national spotlight when he lead the Mountaineers to a 34-32 victory over the Michigan Woverines at the Big House. We have talked about that game time and time again. He simply did not give up, neither did the rest of the team...thus bringing home the victory - which shocked the entire College Football world. Well not the entire College Football world, there we were some believers out there, that knew what Edwards and the rest of the squad was capable of accomplishing. In December, he led the Appalachian State Mountaineer's to a third straight National Title.

Eyes will be watching Armanti Edwards, I guarantee you he will be in the running for the Heisman this year. And once again, the spotlight will be on the little town in Boone, NC.
