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.
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.
What most people don't know is all the good things that the coach did without anybody knowing. For instance, he would grab up a couple of us players and go to the burn unit at Children's Hospital. He was always doing things like that and didn't want any publicity about it.
