College football career

As a sophomore in 1998, Weinke led the Florida State Seminoles to a 9-1 record and #2 national ranking before a season-ending neck injury forced him to the sidelines. During his junior season in 1999, he led the #1 ranked 'Noles to a 12-0 record and the school's second national championship, defeating Michael Vick and the Virginia Tech Hokies 46-29 in the Sugar Bowl. As a senior in 2000, Weinke won the Heisman Trophy, awarded to college football's best player, as well as the Davey O'Brien Award and the Johnny Unitas Award. He also led the Seminoles to the Orange Bowl for their third title game in as many years, where they lost 13-2 to the Oklahoma Sooners. At the age of 28, Weinke was the oldest player in football history to win the Heisman Trophy.

Pro football career

Weinke was selected by the Carolina Panthers in the fourth round (106th overall pick) of the 2001 NFL Draft. Like many Heisman Trophy winners before him, he has had a less than stellar career in the NFL. In 2001, he was the starter when the Carolina Panthers went 1-15. On October 16, 2005, Weinke saw his first action since the 2002 season when starter Jake Delhomme went down with an injury against the Detroit Lions. Weinke threw a touchdown pass to wide receiver Ricky Proehl, giving the Panthers the 21-20 win over the Lions. In the 2006 off-season, he re-signed with Carolina. He then continued to back up Jake Delhomme. On December 10, 2006, against the New York Giants, Weinke made his first start since 2002 in place of an injured Delhomme. The Panthers would go on to lose the game, 27 - 13; however, Weinke would throw for 423 yards, shattering the previous single-game team record of 373 set by his predecessor, Steve Beuerlein. The next start Weinke made, however, was his second career win, despite Weinke only attempting 7 passes. Weinke holds the NFL record for most consecutive losses by a quarterback at 15. The Montreal Alouettes hold his Canadian Football League rights.

Bowl Championship Series - Weinke wins 2000 Heisman Trophy (1231 words)
Weinke, who spent six years playing minor league baseball before returning to school in 1997, finished off a record-setting season by leading the Seminoles into an Orange Bowl matchup against No. 1 Oklahoma with a chance for a second straight national championship.
Weinke had 369 first-place votes and 1,628 points; Heupel, who led the Sooners to the title game against the Seminoles by passing for 3,392 yards and 20 touchdowns, had 286 first-place votes and 1,552 points.
Over the past six weeks, Weinke's age became a Heisman issue even though voters are simply asked to cast their ballot for the "Outstanding Football Player of the United States." Some voters indicated they would leave Weinke's name off the ballot because the quarterback's age gave him an unfair advantage over his younger rivals.
