The first Heisman Trophy winner from the state of Oklahoma was Cleveland's Billy Vessels.

The OU running back won the Heisman in 1952.

He was the second overall pick of the NFL Draft that same year. He died on Nov. 17, 2001 (less than a year after OU football's last national championship), at age 70.

The 2019 Heisman Trophy winner will be announced 7 p.m. Saturday, Dec. 14, on ESPN.
