Will Anderson reacts to not being named a Heisman Trophy finalist
While a lot of Alabama fans were disappointed that linebacker Will Anderson Jr. was not named 1 of the 4 Heisman Trophy finalists, the Nagurski Award winner did not seem fazed by the whole deal.
In fact, he was downright chipper when asked about it Tuesday:
Will Anderson, always an upbeat and engaging interview, reacts to not being named a Heisman finalist.
“It’s God’s plan. It’s not my plan. I’m just following what God’s got for me. I’m just gonna keep on rolling. We good. Bryce’s there. We straight." pic.twitter.com/ND7kKb1OPh

“It’s God’s plan. It’s not my plan,” he said. “I’m just following what God’s got for me. I’m just gonna keep on rolling. We good. Bryce’s there. We straight.”
Anderson sang the praises of his quarterback, Bryce Young, and said he thought his quarterback should win the award:
“In my opinion, it is — Mr. Heisman himself,” Anderson said to CBS reporter Jamie Erdahl after the Crimson Tide’s win over Georgia (via On3 Sports). “Did you see what he did tonight? Did you see what he did tonight? That’s a Heisman.”
Yet, if you look at Anderson’s stats, one wonders — why didn’t more writers vote for him?
Anderson has 52 solo tackles and 15.5 sacks which leads the FBS. Michigan linebacker Aidan Hutchinson, who is second in the nation in sacks, was invited to New York.
