Henry had 1,832 points, beating Stanford’s Christian McCafferty (1,539) and Clemson’s DeShaun Watson (1,165 points.)
“Since (I’ve been) a kid it’s been a lifelong goal and a dream of mine, I’m just so thankful,” Henry said.
This season, Henry rushed for 1,986 yards, the sixth-highest rushing total of any back who won the Heisman and the most since Ron Dayne in 1999. He was the third running back in SEC history (with Bo Jackson and Herschel Walker, both winners of the award) to have four 200-yard afternoons.
Henry is the second Alabama player to win the Heisman after Mark Ingram in 2009.
