1983 Heisman Trophy Winner Mike Rozier

The most recognizable award in American sports, the Heisman Trophy has been given annually to the best NCAA football player since 1935. The 2008 college football season marked the 25th anniversary of Nebraska running back and former Coffeyville Community College (Kan.) star Mike Rozier winning the award. His 1983 season at Nebraska was one of the greatest of all time as he rushed for 2,148 yards on 275 carries and scored a then school-record 29 touchdowns. Rozier averaged 179 yards per game, while rushing for over 100 yards in 11 straight games, including a career-best 285 yards against Kansas. His 2,148 yards as senior is the fifth-highest total in NCAA history, and he was the second rusher in NCAA history to surpass 2,000 yards in a season.

Rozier was a 1980 NJCAA and JC Gridwire All-American after leading Coffeyville to a 9-0 record while rushing for 1,316 yards and 10 touchdowns for the Red Ravens. He averaged 7.4 yards a carry that season and in 1999 was inducted into the Coffeyville Red Raven Hall of Fame.
