Manti Te'o: Heisman Trophy campaign highlight video

Notre Dame's Manti Te'o is one of three finalists competing for the 2012 Heisman Trophy on Saturday night. Below is a highlight video of every key play the senior linebacker made this season.

If there is one way to best describe Manti Te'o's 2012 season, it may have come via NBC analyst Mike Mayock in the video linked above. In the video, Mayock said the following:

"Every once in awhile a player comes around whose value transcends his numbers," Mayock said.

That was Manti Te'o in a nutshell in 2012: He was most valuable player on college football's best team, and the single biggest reason the Notre Dame Fighting Irish are playing for the 2012 BCS National Championship.

On the season, Te'o finished with seven interceptions (which tied him for second nationally) and led Notre Dame in tackles with 103, to go along with 5.5 tackles for loss and 1.5 sacks. And Te'o's big season paid off, when he took home a record six awards at this week's College Football Awards Show, including the Maxwell Award as the nation's top player.

Regardless, every big play of Te'o's 2012 season is in the video above.

Watch and enjoy one of the greatest seasons we've ever seen from a linebacker in college football.
