Woodson was a key member of the Wolverines’ 1997 national championship team where he was a key contributor on both offense and defense. He remains the most recent player not to be a running back or quarterback to win the award, along with being the only primarily defensive player to claim the Heisman.
During his Heisman winning season, Woodson also claimed the Walter Camp Award, Bronko Nagurski Trophy, Chuck Bednarik Award, Jim Thorpe Award and Big Ten Player of the Year. He was also a two-time first-team All-American.
