The greatest prizes in sports
The pose struck by the figure on the Heisman Memorial Trophy has been re-enacted countless times, including famously by Desmond Howard as he ran into the end zone during a Michigan-Ohio State game in 1991. The trophy is awarded to the most outstanding player of the year, and is named for John W. Heisman, a coach credited with football innovations such as the forward pass and many modern rules.
It was first awarded, by the Downtown Athletic Club in New York, in 1935 to Chicago's Jay Berwanger. Last year, Auburn quarterback Cam Newton (left) won it.
