Jayden Daniels receives impressive national honor from AP
Jayden Daniels received an impressive national honor on Thursday. One of many, past and future, we’re sure.
The star LSU quarterback was named the AP Player of the Year for a simply outstanding 2023 season. Daniels finished first in the voting ahead of Michael Penix, Bo Nix, Marvin Harrison Jr and Ollie Gordon.
Daniels, who originally transferred from Arizona State, had a good 2022 season before going nuclear in 2023. He was impressive through the air as he was on the ground, throwing for 3,812 yards with 40 touchdowns and 4 interceptions while rushing for 1,134 yards and 10 touchdowns.

Daniels is the frontrunner to win the Heisman Trophy in 2 days, facing Bo Nix, Michael Penix and Marvin Harrison Jr. Nix, who was neck-and-neck with Daniels, lost to Washington in the Pac-12 championship game.
