Parkland grad Andre Williams is in New York City and waiting to find out on Saturday if he'll be named the Heisman Trophy winner.

Last night Andre Williams won the Doak Walker award as college football's top running back. Tomorrow, the Parkland grad could win the Heisman Trophy, as college football's top player of 2013. We find out in about 24 hours. Williams had a huge year at Boston College, capping a very good career, a career not all that different from what he did at Parkland. He's one of six finalists for the Heisman Trophy which means he'll be in the front row with the rest of the finalists tomorrow night in New York City. His former head coach, his family, and his former teammates will all be watching and hoping he wins an award that they never imagined he could win.
