Billy Cannon, 1959 Heisman Trophy winner, is still revered as one of Louisiana's greatest sports heroes.

Notice the uncanny resemblance to recent Heisman winner Tim Tebow. They both have that "run through a brick wall" look that great athletes have.

Cannon's life has had plenty of ups and downs.

Read this fine article on his recent life and the redemptive theme.

A quote from the article, "The people of Louisiana are quick to love," Cannon told the AP guy. "They are also quick to forgive." When the reporter asked the question, Cannon said, "I did the crime and I did the time. I haven't had a speeding ticket since."

And that was it.
