(CNSNews.com) - University of Louisville quarterback Lamar Jackson was awarded the Heisman Trophy tonight at a ceremony in New York City.
Jackson wore a crucifix around his neck during the day, while doing interviews, and then during the ceremony itself. When he was called up to give his speech on winning the trophy, he said: 'First and foremost, before I go further along in my speech, I want to thank my Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ. Without him, none of us would be here right now."
