Striking A Pose

This 1891 photograph shows John Heisman in his University of Pennsylvania football uniform. His legacy lives on in the form of the Heisman Memorial Trophy, which is awarded annually to the nation's most outstanding college football player. This pose, an outstretched 'stiff' arm and another clutching the ball, closely resembles the pose of the bronze trophy.
