"I think he was the best player in America before this game, so I think it's just the icing on the cake," Stanford coach David Shaw said. "I do think it's a shame that a lot of people didn't get to see him during the course of the year. Apparently the games were too late."
"It's special," coach David Shaw said. "It's not a conference record. It's not just a really good year. This is a historic year. He did something that no one has ever done and has done it better than everyone who has ever won a Heisman. It's phenomenal."
