Mayfield becomes the sixth Oklahoma Sooner to earn the distinction.
Saturday night, Oklahoma quarterback Bakey Mayfield made history by becoming the first walk-on player to win the Heisman Trophy since the NCAA began allowing athletic schiolarships in 1950.
For Mayfield, whose college career began when he walked onto Texas Tech's team, it was a night of feats as he also went on to become the first senior to win the Heisman since 2006 when Troy Smith took it home, and earned the thir-highest percentage of possible point in a landslide win, falling behind Marcus Mariota (2014) and Smith.
"This is unbelievable for me, being up here among these greats," Mayfield said as he accpeted his award in the mids of past Heiosman winners onstage. "It's something that words can't even describe. God has put me in this position that I'm so blessed, and a lot of times I wonder why. But it's such an honor to be up here. It's unbelievable."
