(NFL.com) – Louisville quarterback Lamar Jackson won the Heisman Trophy on Saturday after a spectacular sophomore season in which he accounted for 51 touchdowns and nearly 5,000 total yards.

Jackson beat out Clemson QB Deshaun Watson, Michigan LB Jabrill Peppers, Oklahoma QB Baker Mayfield and Oklahoma WR Dede Westbrook for the honor. Jackson, 19, is the youngest Heisman winner ever, and the first Heisman winner from Louisville (he was the school’s first finalist for the honor).

Watson finished second in the voting, with 1,524 points to Jackson’s 2,144. Mayfield finished third (361 points), Westbrook fourth (209) and Peppers fifth (208).

“To the Heisman voters, I’m truly honored and humbled to be the 2016 Heisman Trophy winner,” said Jackson, who fought back tears during his acceptance speech.

“To be able to stand up here with all these other Heisman Trophy winners, I’m extremely proud to represent this class and the University of Louisville with their first Heisman Trophy.”
