The Tuscola Kid, part 2

Colt McCoy, the Longhorns’ redshirt freshman QB, cracks the Rocky Mountain News’ Heisman poll for the first time–in fifth place. The kid from the tiny (population 714) West Texas town of Tuscola, also was named the Big 12’s Offensive Player of the Week and was presented the offensive game ball of the Master Coaches Survey for leading  the Texas comeback over Texas Tech. According to the Austin American-Statesman’s sportswriter Suzanne Halliburton: one more touchdown pass and Colt will be in a six-way tie on the all-time NCAA Division I-A freshman list. How’s that for going from unknown to college football’s best in less than three months?
