What does this mean to me?
That’s a tough one.
When I was at Harvard, I was just the kid.
I was not a senior.
I remember I was 17 or 18 and I was in my first year in college and we had a very big party.
And it was a really good party, so it was really fun.
And then, just like that, it was all downhill from there.
And the next year I was still in my freshman year, and then they just decided to change the award from the Rose Bowl to the Heisman.
And I think that’s really, really important because it makes a big difference in how you view yourself.
And that’s kind of where I’m coming from.
But I think it’s also a really important thing for people to understand that this is something that’s meant to be shared.
And not something that people should be ashamed of.
And, you know, there are a lot of things that we’ve done that are really important, but there’s something that really resonates for me.
I mean, it’s very important to me that we do what we can to make sure that this trophy is really something that I can see myself wearing, and I can feel proud of.
Because, again, I think you just never know who you’re going to get when you have that honor.
You know, that’s not a gift that we get, but it’s something I can be proud of, and that’s a really nice feeling.
