Transcript D ETERMINED, TALENTED, OUTSTANDING, CHARISMATIC, QUICK, INTELLIGENT, POWERFUL, INSIGHTFUL, AND HUMBLE. These are words that most journalists used to describe UH quarterback Andre Ware, before and after the Heisman Trophy ceremonies. Ware was rightfully awarded the prestigious Heisman Trophy, despite being a virtual unknown prospect at the beginning of the 1989 season. Since UH could not play in nationally televised games, many feared that most of the Heisman voters would not appreciate Ware's ability. However, thanks to major network half-time shows, cable sports channels, and an interview with Bryant Gumbel on the Today Show, Ware still got the exposure he needed. Ware became the first black quarterback to win the Heisman, and the first SWC player since Earl Campbell. Ware saw one of his dreams come true; he became a Consensus Ail- American. He was named first team quarterback to almost every All- America team. Ware also made first team All-SWC, and was voted SWC Offensive Player of the Year. To top it all off, Ware was named to the SWC All-Decade Team. Ware stated, "... If I'm a Consensus All-America, that would let me know that I'm successful. And, more importantly, if I'm successful, our offense and team will be successful." At the beginning of the season Ware said he was pleased to be considered among the elite (Heisman winners) athletes. But, even he didn't give much thought to actually winning the Heisman. As members of the AP All-America Team, Ware and teammate Manny Hazard were invited to appear on Bob Hope's annual Christmas Special. Andre Ware's name is permanently engraved in the sports history books because of his phenomenal 1989 season. Ware set no less than 18 NCAA and SWC passing records,which included his whopping total of 4,699 yards passing for the season and a near record 46 touchdown passes. No other Heisman winning quarterback came close to Ware's statistics. Not Roger Staubach. Not Doug Flutie. Not Vinny Testeverde. And, Ware possesed the same leadership qualities as any of them. Andre Ware was a class act. The recruitment of this young man was the best thing the UH athletic department has ever done and will ever do. -R.Ricardo Sutton 1987 1988 1989 Totals 5 11 11 27 83 212 365 659 140 356 578 1,074 Int. 5 8 15 28 Passing TDs 4 25 46 75 Yards Avg. game Rating 59.3 59.6 63.1 61.4 996 2,507 4,699 8,202 199.2 227.4 427.2 303.8 121.3 137.4 152.6 143.5 256 RE?P°rtiOT 257
