In an interview with Michael Strahan on Fox, Sanders was asked about the Heisman Trophy hype. Here is what the Jackson State star had to say, per Fox College Football.

“I don’t picture it as just playing around, you know, hype, just throwing a name out there. I picture real things. All I can focus on is just week-in, week-out, going out there and dominating.”

It is clear that Shedeur Sanders thinks he belongs in the Heisman Trophy conversation, but he also doesn’t want to get too caught up in the hype.

The Jackson State football star has a legitimate shot for the award. Sanders has thrown for 1,985 yards with 22 touchdowns and just four interceptions while rushing for 97 yards and two touchdowns on the ground.
