Young Money artist Aubrey “Drake” Graham is not the only one that can go back-to-back. Alabama running back Derrick Henry collected his second honor Thursday at the College Football Awards. He won this year’s Doak Walker Award, an honor given to the nation’s top back. Henry becomes the second Alabama player to win (Trent Richardson, 2011). 

Henry won the Walter Camp Player of the Year award and was one of five Crimson Tide players to make the foundation’s All-America team. He will be in New York City Saturday night for the 81st Heisman Memorial Trophy presentation.
