The Heisman Trophy is an annual award given to the nation's most outstanding player. Originally conceived by members of Manhattan's Downtown Athletic Club, the award was first presented at the conclusion of the 1935 college football season. Jay Berwanger, described as a "triple-threat cyclone in Chicago's backfield," was the first recipient of the honor.
Brendan Carney, redshirt senior punter for Syracuse University, looks to become the 72nd member of this hallowed fraternity in 2006.
The 2006 Orange football season should prove to be Carney's finest on the gridiron. With a slate of games tailored made for incredible punting performances, Carney is poised to elevate his status from bona fide superstar to blasphemous demigod.

|Brendan Carney: 2006 Punting Statistics|
*: Carney launched a 12-yard punt due to a poor snap from center Ian Hammond. Had that punt not been included in Carney's statistics, he would have averaged 47.4 yards per attempt.
**: Due to incomprehensible field position, Carney needed to take some distance of his punts. As a result, his average was somewhat low. However, three of his kicks landed inside the 20 and one inside the five. Still very, very impressive.
***: It has been announced the Carney is suffering from an Achilles injury. Thus, his numbers have becoming fairly pedestrian, at least by normal Carney standards.
****: It was windy. Really windy.
Oftentimes cumulative statistics can be deceiving. Brendan Carney's career numbers, however, appear to be the exception to such concern. The numbers are gaudy, unmatched, and more impressive than a fat kid dominating a smell contest.
