On Friday, Michigan’s heisman finalist, Jabrill Peppers, was asked about his chances at winning the heisman trophy on Saturday. As humble as ever, Peppers responded with a statement that will make you love him even more:
“Quite frankly, I don’t think I should (win), there are a lot of other guys here who are more qualified.”
He went onto say: “I’m just happy I’m here with the likes of the guys who are finalists. I’m going to enjoy every moment of it.”
The one reason behind the star linebacker’s presence in New York this weekend is far beyond his defensive efforts; it’s all about his versatility which allows him to return punts, kicks, and often enough, take offensive snaps.
Jabrill also stated that he wouldn’t even vote for himself if he had the chance: “I’d vote for either Lamar or Deshaun.”
Jabrill has been utilized at 15 different positions, and he played in 933 snaps this regular season for the #6 ranked Wolverines.
