A.J. McCarron got fat on the awards season circuit.

There's more of A.J. McCarron  for Katherine Webb to love. The Alabama starting quarterback told reporters that he gained a few pounds while on making the rounds on the college football awards  season.

"I gained too much weight,"McCarron meeting with the press on Thursday. ""I gained too much weight."

McCarron said he weighed around 214-216 before he left Tuscaloosa to the various awards ceremonies around the East Coast. He says that when he returned he had shot up to 230 when weighing himself wearing shoulder pads. The pads weigh four pounds.

"On that first day I could feel it. I felt big, but I was moving fine," McCarron told the press. He did say that he was back down to 224 pounds on Thursday, however.

McCarron blames New York style pizza for the added pounds. " "It's unbelievable." He said.  "I love it."

Along with the weight, McCarron brought home the Maxwell Award and the Johnny Unitas Golden Arm Award, as well as being a finalist for the Heisman Trophy.
