Miami teammates vie for Heisman

NEW YORK, Dec. 13 (UPI) -- Miami teammates Ken Dorsey and Willis McGahee are among the finalists this year for the Heisman Trophy as college football's top player.

Turner Gill (born August 13, 1962, in Fort Worth, Texas) is the head coach of the Buffalo Bulls college football team and is one of seven current African-American head coaches in the NCAA Division I Football Bowl Subdivision.

Gill graduated from Arlington Heights High School in Fort Worth, Texas. During his senior season, Gill was courted heavily by Nebraska, as well as arch-rival Oklahoma, and Texas. Nebraska won the spirited battle for Gill, in part because they would allow Turner to play baseball as well as football, but also because head coach Tom Osborne had managed to quell any rumours about Nebraska supposedly being reluctant to play an African-American at quarterback.

Gill arrived on campus in 1980 and saw limited action in mop-up duty as a freshman, which at the time was still relatively unusual, as freshmen had only been recently allowed under NCAA rules to participate at the varsity level.
