Mariota wins Manning award for top quarterback

Posted: Updated:
UNDATED (AP)--Oregon quarterback Marcus Mariota has added another award to his collection.
    
The Heisman Trophy winner was honored with the Manning Award for the nation's top college quarterback Friday. The winner is determined by a vote from a panel of local and national media, as well as Archie, Peyton and Eli Manning.
    
Mariota announced Wednesday that he had decided to forgo his final season at Oregon and declare his eligibility for this year's NFL draft.
    
The 6-foot-4 dual-threat quarterback led the 13-2 Ducks all the way to Monday's national championship game, but Oregon ultimately fell 42-20 to Ohio State.
    
In addition to the Heisman, Mariota has also won the Maxwell and Walter Camp awards for player of the year, the Davey O'Brien award for quarterback of the year, Pac-12 offensive player of the year, and the AP Player of the Year award.
