LSU’s Mathieu’s Heisman hopes won’t end this year
It was his fifth fumble recovery of the season, to go with six forced fumbles, two interceptions, 1 1/2 sacks, 6 1/2 tackles for losses and a team-leading 70 total tackles.
“We look at athletes and look at the accolades, and then say, `But,’” Chavis said. “We all have `buts’ in our life. It’s a matter of growing and maturing from them and he’s done a great job with that. … Athletes are held to a higher standard. He understands that now and I think he enjoys that responsibility.”
Mathieu might not among the favorites to win the award this year and even talks as if this weekend’s visit to the Big Apple was somehow meant to give him a taste of what he might accomplish next year. After all, Mathieu is only a sophomore and plans to return to LSU for his junior season in 2012.
“I’m going to enjoy this experience,” Mathieu said, “and hopefully it won’t be my last time being a finalist for the Heisman Trophy.”
