Joe Burrow adds 'Herbie Award' to postseason haul
The past few days, it feels like Joe Burrow has won every imaginable award for quarterbacks/offensive players. Burrow won multiple awards for top quarterback (Golden Arm Award, Davey O’Brien Award) as well as being recognized by the SEC and numerous organizations (Associated Press, Walter Camp Football Foundation) as the top player in college football for the 2019 season. On Saturday, Burrow took home the ultimate CFB individual award, the Heisman Trophy. It turns out he wasn’t done winning awards.
On Sunday, ESPN’s Kirk Herbstreit handed out his annual “Herbie Awards.” Herbstreit tabbed Burrow as his Offensive Player of the Year.

Herbstreit also shared this weekend that he was impressed by Burrow thanking his offensive linemen after winning the Heisman Trophy:
OUTSTANDING speech by Joe Burrow at the @HeismanTrophy LOVED how he thanked his OL 1st.
Also how he opened up his heart and expressed gratitude towards family, coaches, and teammates along the way. Both at @LSUfootball and @OhioStateFB Congrats Joe!!
VERY WELL deserved!!

While “The Herbie” isn’t saving the best for last by any means (sorry, Kirk), it might be the end of the award parade for Burrow before and the Tigers go into Peach Bowl mode starting Monday.
