    Andre Ware is the 55th winner of the Heisman Trophy and the quarterback of the University of Houston.
    He is, in addition, the first star from the Southwest Conference to win the Heisman Trophy since 1977 when Earl Campbell of the University of Texas was honored. In the first ten games of the 1989 season, he completed 329 passes in 516 attempts for 4,299 yards and 44 touchdowns. Against arch-rival Texas, Ware hurled four touchdown passes in leading the Cougars to a 47-9 victory. Facing a strong Texas Tech team, Ware had a sensational afternoon, completing 37 passes for 475 yards and four touchdowns. As a sophomore in 1988, Ware gave an early indication of just how good he was going to be at throwing the football. He passed for 25 touchdowns to set a Southwest Conference record, a mark he has bettered this season. He had only eight interceptions, which was a remarkable statistic given the fact that he was only a sophomore and the Houston team put the ball in the air most of the time. André played for the Toronto Argonauts of the CFL. André was signed by the Oakland Raiders in 1998 and he retired from the NFL in 1999.
