Caleb Williams, USC’s second star, wins 2022 Heisman Trophy


University of Southern California quarterback Caleb Williams won the Heisman Trophy at a ceremony in New York on Saturday night.

A sophomore from Washington, DC, Williams entered his first season with the Trojans with exorbitant expectations following his transfer from Oklahoma. Williams not only met those expectations, he exceeded them.

Williams becomes the first school player to win the award since Reggie Bush in 2005. Bush’s award was later rescinded.
