Leftwich threw for over 4,000 yards for Marshall
HUNTINGTON, W.Va. -- Byron Leftwich's second straight 4,000-yard passing season wasn't enough to make him a Heisman Trophy finalist.
Leftwich wasn't among the five players invited to Saturday's trophy presentation ceremony in New York City.
Leftwich's slow recovery from a leg injury sustained in early November ended his candidacy.
"I'm not disappointed at all,'' Leftwich said. "I don't hold any grudges. Nobody promised me I'd be one of those guys in the first place.''
