Athletes, volunteers, parents, coaches, and...um, plenty of other people made sure to stop by Athlete Village on Friday to have their picture taken with the Heisman Memorial Trophy. Yes - the real thing! Brigham Young University graduate and 1990 Heisman winner, Ty Detmer, was gracious enough to loan his historic award to SOTX just for Winter Games. Our athletes wasted no time striking the well-known trophy pose, complete with an old school football and even older school helmet, for a keepsake photo. That's right, their pictures were printed out within minutes and everyone who posed with the Heisman took home a souvenir pic of themselves with the award.

You've got to see it - but don't touch - for yourself! Practice your Heisman pose; Athlete Village opens at 10:00 a.m. on Saturday and closes at 3:00 p.m.
