Oklahoma quarterback Baker Mayfield is almost certainly a lock to win the Heisman, and Sooners fans have a special request for the trophy.
A petition has started to have the trophy show him planting the flag after a win over Ohio State. The petition is titled, “Make Baker Mayfield’s Heisman Park statue depict him planting the OU flag,” and already has over 6,000 signatures.
The description reads, “Winners of the Heisman Trophy who attend The University of Oklahoma are memorialized in Heisman Park on Jenkins Avenue in Norman, OK with their own statue. Sign this petition to show your support for depicting Baker Mayfield planting the flag!”
I want to hate this move, but it’s hard too. It’s so bold to ask for the Heisman Trophy to be changed from its iconic form. Obviously it’s never going to happen, but it’d be awesome if it did.
Also, there is no chance Mayfield isn’t winning the Heisman. It’s without a doubt going to happen.
