2005 Heisman Trophy Winner: Reggie Bush Races Away From the Competition.
Multi-talented and a constant reminder of Gayle Sayers, Reggie Bush became the seventh USC star to win the
Heisman Trophy. The flashy star set the college football world on fire in 2005 as he helped to lead the Trojans
to an undefeated regular season and a BCS Championship game shootout with Texas. With the ability to
score anywhere on the field, Bush excelled from the backfield and as a punt and kick off return specialist. The
average length of his 18 touchdowns in 2005 was 31.4 yards and he averaged a touchdown every 14.4 times
he touched the ball.
Bush proved to be extremely popular off the field as well. His 84% first place Heisman votes game him highest percentage in Heisman voting history. Bush rushed 187 times gaining 1,658 yards and scoring 15 touchdowns in the regular season. Bush also caught 31 passes for 383 yards and 2 additional touchdowns. His late season performance against Fresno State added icing to the Heisman cake as Bush amassed a PAC-10 record of 513 all-purpose yards including 294 yards rushing. Bush left USC after his junior season and was drafted by the New Orleans Saints with the number two overall selection in the first round. Click Here for Reggie Bush signed USC and Saints photos.
