Heisman Trophy makes stop in Tifton

TIFTON, GA (WALB) -

The most iconic trophy in college football made a stop in south Georgia Thursday.

The Heisman Trophy was on display at Tifton's Tenneson Nissan this afternoon.

Nissan sponsors the Heisman and is touring the trophy at dealerships around the country.

For many in the area, it provided a chance to get close to college football history.

"People are bringing their kids, bringing their babies by, getting their picture with their whole families. It is the cutest thing," laughs Katie Tenneson of Tenneson Nissan. "People talking about using it for a Christmas card, sending it out on Facebook. It is the neatest thing and we are so excited about it."

The Heisman is now on its way to its next stop.

It'll be awarded in December to the nation's most outstanding college football player.
