Mike Mayweather is the last Army football player to receive a Heisman vote.
Mayweather finished 10th in the voting for the 1990 trophy, receiving three first-place votes.
Army all-time leading rusher joined the Black Knight Nation podcast to talk about growing up in East St. Louis, finding a mentor, his college recruitment that included Notre Dame, Stanford and Georgia Tech and how Army wasn’t originally sold on him as a football player.
“My understanding was the football team was not going as a recruit for admissions,” said Mayweather, Army’s first-team all-American running back who finished with 4,299 yards in his career.
Mayweather also talks about the process of getting his release from the Army to pursue the NFL a few years after he graduated with the Eagles.
