Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Gino Louis Torretta (born August 10, 1970 in Pinole, California) is a Heisman Trophy winner who played quarterback for several teams in the National Football League from 1993 to 1997. Torretta is best known for winning the Heisman Trophy in 1992 as the quarterback of the University of Miami and playing on the University of Miami's National Championship teams of 1989 and 1991. He also won the 1992 Davey O'Brien National Quarterback Award after his outstanding season. Torretta was elected to the College Football Hall of Fame in 2009 and will be formally inducted in 2010. As quarterback at the University of Miami, Torretta spent his first two seasons mostly on the bench behind then starting quarterback Craig Erickson, with his only significant playing time coming with three starts in 1989 after Erickson injured his throwing hand. During that span, however, the then-unknown Torretta lit up San Diego State for 485 yards, setting a school record for most passing yards in a game that has not since been broken.show more
