The writers and former Heisman winners have named their best player in the country by giving the Heisman trophy to Louisville's Lamar Jackson. However, one finalist doesn't really believe in those results and says that he's actually the best player in the country.
Clemson's Deshaun Watson was the second-place finisher for the Heisman trophy and it wasn't particularly close with Jackson garnering 525 first-place votes while Watson ended up with 269 of them. But that didn't him from speaking his mind about who he believes is the best player in the country.
"I'm the best player in the country," Watson said Monday, per ESPN.com. "That's how I think. That's how I feel. People have their own way of voting."
Just to show how dominant Jackson was in the voting, USA Today's Nicole Auerbach released this tweet:
Watson has the right to dispute the results of course, but there won't be any recounts. He did however, throw for five touchdowns and 306 yards against the Cardinals when they played and led his team to a win that game as well as a 12-1 record and the College Football Playoff.
