    Wide receivers have rarely won the Heisman Trophy. Cheap Celtics Jerseys .Desmond Howard of Michigan was the last in 1991. Tim Brown of Notre Dame did it in 1987. And that is the complete list.A receiver will not be winning the Heisman Trophy this season either. Louisville quarterback Lamar Jackson has all but wrapped up the award, but Oklahomas Dede Westbrook is starting to get some attention.Westbrook began the season slowly, with 17 catches for 154 yards in the first three games. Since then he has been all but unstoppable. He had six straight 100-yard games before last week against Baylor when he had four catches for 88 yards and two touchdowns in a rout of the Bears.Alabamas Amari Cooper was the last receiver to be a Heisman finalist back in 2014. He finished third in the voting. The last receiver to do better than that was Pitts Larry Fitzgerald, who finished second to Oklahomas Jason White in 2003.The APs Heisman panel is still locked in on Lamar Jackson at the top of the charts, but more players are getting attention down-ballot:Lamar Jackson, QB, Louisville (21 points)Numbers to know: Jackson is sixth in the nation in rushing (133.4 yards per game), leads in touchdowns with 19 and is averaging 7.25 yards per carry. If he never threw a pass, he would be a Heisman contender.Next: at Houston, Thursday night.

This season hes at 378.Next: at Wake Forest. The Demon Deacons gave Jackson and the Cardinals trouble for three quarters last week.Donnel Pumphrey, RB, San Diego State (3 points)Numbers to know: Pumphrey is 221 yards away from becoming the 27th player in FBS history to run for 2,000 yards in a season. He is also No. 4 on the career rushing list with 6,051 yards.Next: at Wyoming. The Cowboys are sixth in the Mountain West in run defense at 4.43 yards per carry allowed.Jonathan Allen, DL, Alabama (2 points)Numbers to know: Allen is second on the team with 7.5 sacks and leads with 13 quarterback hurries.Next: Chattanooga. Allen probably wont play much this week.DOnta Foreman, RB, Texas (2 points)Numbers to know: Foreman tied a Texas record with his 11th straight 100-yard rushing game last week, matching 1977 Heisman winner Earl Campbell.Next: at Kansas. The Jayhawks allow 5.27 yards per carry, second-worst in the Big 12.Dede Westbrook, WR, Oklahoma (2 points)Numbers to know: Westbrook is tied for second in the country in yards receiving per game at 125.4 and in touchdown catches with 14.Next: at No. 10 West Virginia. The Mountaineers have allowed the fewest yards per pass attempt (6.5) in the Big 12.Baker Mayfield, QB, Oklahoma (1 point)Numbers to know: Mayfield is leading the nation in passer efficiency rating (195.7) and yards per pass (10.9).Next: at No. 10 West Virginia. The Mountaineers are eighth in the Big 12 in sacks with 17.Jake Browning, QB, Washington (1 point)Numbers to know: Browning is coming off by far his worst game of the season at USC. He completed 47 percent of his passes and was picked off multiple times in a game for the first time.Next: Arizona State. The Sun Devils are last in the Pac-12 in pretty much every pass defense statistical category.---AP Heisman watch panel: National Writer Paul Newberry, Georgia; Sports Writer Stephen Hawkins, Texas; Sports Writer John Marshall, Arizona; Sports Writer Joedy McCreary, North Carolina; Sports Writer Eric Olson, Nebraska; Sports Writer Steve Megargee, Tennessee; College Football Writer Ralph D.

Western was last ranked first in the country in October 2011. Black Friday Celtics Jerseys . Thats not a comment on the suspension that banished the Portland Winterhawks general manager and coach from his Western Hockey League teams bench for most of the 2012-13 season. . The lawyers filed a 33-page amended complaint Tuesday in federal court in Manhattan, expanding on the suit originally filed Oct. 3 in New York Supreme Court. Arbitrator Fredric Horowitz last week refused to compel Selig to testify in the grievance, and Rodriguez then walked out of the hearing without testifying. ATLANTA -- The Washington Nationals are heating up, which is bad news for the Atlanta Braves.The Nationals travel to Atlanta to start a three-game series Friday. Theyve won eight of their last 10 and just took two of three from the New York Mets, leaving them with a 10-game cushion in the National League East.The Braves are headed the other way. They are 2-4 on their current homestand and won only two of their last nine as they try to avoid their first 100-loss season since 1988.Now the sagging Braves must host their biggest nemesis. The Nationals are 14-2 against the Braves this year, including a three-game sweep last week in Washington. The Braves have won only two games in its last 25 tries against the Nats. Atlanta needs to go 7-9 or better to avoid a 100-loss season.Were trying to win every game we play, Atlanta manager Brian Snitker said. Were playing every game like it was the seventh game of the World Series. Were not going to lay down and give in.Meanwhile, Washingtons magic number to clinch the division is seven.Im not a big stat guy, said bench coach Chris Speier, who was acting as manager while Dusty Baker was attending a family funeral. The magic number stuff? No. You play one game. Win one game. Dont worry about anything else.The first game of the series features Washingtons veteran right-hander Max Scherzer (16-7, 2.78 ERA) against Atlanta rookie right-hander John Gant (1-3, 4. Cyber Monday Celtics Jerseys. 0).Scherzer is on a four-game winning streak, although he received a no-decision in his last start when he threw 6 2/3 scoreless innings and struck out eight against the Phillies. He is 11-3 since June 1.Scherzer beat the Braves on Sept. 5. He pitched seven innings and allowed two runs on seven hits with five strikeouts. In his career against Atlanta, Scherzer is 4-3 with a 3.84 ERA in 11 appearances (nine starts).Gant makes his 16th appearance and seventh start. He pitched a scoreless inning of relief in his only appearance against Washington on April 6. Gants last start came against the Mets on Sept. 10, when he received a no-decision after allowing three runs (one earned) in 4 2/3 innings.Both teams may be missing a key player. Washingtons Danny Espinosa left the team Wednesday after the game to join his wife in California, where their first child is due. Atlanta first baseman Freddie Freeman left his team in the seventh inning Wednesday to join his wife for the birth of their first child.The Braves would really miss Freemans bat. He is riding a 20-game hitting streak, the longest in the National League this season, and has reached base in a career-best 36 straight contests.
