Boston College legend
For being “too small” to play quarterback, Doug Flutie sure had a heck of a career. Flutie changed the college game back in the 1980s when he showed that not only can he run like the wind, but he can throw with the best of them.
Flutie set the NCAA all-time passing yardage mark while becoming the first Boston College player to capture the Heisman Trophy back in 1984. Many fans believed that the “Miracle in Miami” sealed the deal for Flutie in terms of winning the Heisman.
It may have helped, but Flutie was solid all season in 1984. In fact, he was following up on a great 1983 season where he was a Heisman nominee.
