Mike Garrett: Langston’s Heisman Trophy Winner | News
Mike Garrett has experienced excellence at basically every form of athletics he has been involved in.
The Los Angeles native won the 1965 Heisman Trophy, played eight years of pro football and won 23 national titles at his Alma Mater as athletic director.
After his time ended at USC, Garrett spent two years in retirement. A search firm eventually found him for Langston’s opening as athletic director, where he’s been the last year.
