  NEW YORK (AP) -- The Heisman Trophy has gone to a running back for the first time since 2009.
   Alabama's Derrick Henry has received the honor tonight in New York after helping the Crimson Tide reach the CFP semifinals for the second straight year. Henry led the nation with 1,986 rushing yards and 23 touchdowns for the 12-1 Tide. He ran for 189 yards and a touchdown on 44 carries in the Alabama's Southeastern Conference championship game victory against Florida on Saturday.
   Henry is the second Alabama player to win the Heisman, six years after running back Mark Ingram captured it.
