Does Archie Griffin get two Heisman Trophy votes?

Many people know that former recipients of the Heisman Trophy also receive something in addition to one of the most famous statues in sports: a vote for the award in future seasons.

Griffin, who won the award in consecutive years in 1974 and 1975 while at Ohio State, is the only two-time winner in the trophy’s 77-year history.

That does not entitle him to multiple votes, however.

In an online chat he conducted on Espn.com in 2004, Griffin answered the question himself.

“That is the most common question I get! I've been lobbying for that but I just get the one vote,” he wrote at the time.
