NORMAN, Okla. (AP) Newly minted Heisman Trophy winner Kyler Murray is apologizing for anti-gay tweets posted to his Twitter account several years ago, when he was 14 and 15.

The Oklahoma quarterback tweeted : "I apologize for the tweets that have come to light tonight from when I was 14 and 15. I used a poor choice of word that doesn\'t reflect who I am or what I believe. I did not intend to single out any individual or group."

The tweets have since been deleted from the account of the 21-year-old Murray, who won college football\'s most prestigious individual award Saturday night over Alabama\'s Tua Tagovailoa and Ohio State\'s Dwayne Haskins.
