Heis­man for a Hur­ri­cane?

Austin American-Statesman - - SPORTS -

Dur­ing the first half of the 2009 sea­son, when he was one of the most elec­tri­fy­ing quar­ter­backs in the coun­try, Ja­cory Har­ris showed up on some Heis­man Tro­phy vot­ers’ lists, but the wiry sig­nal caller was plagued by in­con­sis­tency in the sec­ond half of the sea­son.

His num­bers by sea­son’s end were solid ones — 3,352 yards pass­ing, 24 touch­downs and 17 in­ter­cep­tions, a 59.6 com­ple­tion per­cent­age. The ju­nior will get a chance to im­prove upon those num­bers in 2010, as of­fense co­or­di­na­tor Mark Whip­ple in­stalled the West Coast of­fense in an at­tempt to cut down on in­ter­cep­tions. Fewer picks and more touch­down passes could have Har­ris don­ning a suit for a trip to New York City in De­cem­ber.
