Notre Dame’s Johnny Lattner in action. Lattner won the 1953 Heisman Trophy despite not even leading Notre Dame in the key statistical categories. Instead, he was simply so productive across the board — 651 rushing yards, 204 receiving yards, 321 kick return yards on just eight returns, 103 punt return yards and four interceptions — and helped lead the Fighting Irish to a 9-0-1 record and a national title. The two-time Maxwell Award winner player just one season in the NFL before injuring his knee playing a game while on military service. (AP)GALLERY: Top 10 Notre Dame Athletes of All Time
