Gino Torretta, the 1992 Heisman Trophy winner and one of Miami’s most decorated players, will have his No. 13 jersey retired by the Hurricane Athletic Department during the regular-season home finale at Hard Rock Stadium against Louisville on Nov. 18.
Torretta will become the fifth Hurricane player to have his jersey retired, joining fellow Heisman winner Vinny Testaverde (No. 14), George Mira (No. 10), Jim Dooley (No. 42) and Ted Hendricks (No. 89).
Torretta, 53, led Miami to the 1991 national championship, passing for 3,095 yards and 20 touchdowns en route to a 12-0 season.
Under Torretta, the Hurricanes extended their winning streak to 23 games with an 11-0 1992 regular season. Torretta threw for 3,070 yards and 19 touchdowns as he became Miami’s second Heisman winner.
Torretta also was named the winner of the 1992 Maxwell, Davey O’Brien and Johnny Unitas Golden Arm Awards and was tabbed as the Walter Camp Player of the Year.
He concluded his Miami career with a 26-2 record as a starter, including four starts during the Hurricanes’ 1989 national title season.
He left Coral Gables with 11 school records, including for passing yards and total offense.
