Reggie Bush Pleads With NCAA To Return His Heisman Trophy after New Rule

When the NCAA announced that they would now allow college athletes to profit off the name, image and likeness, Reggie Bush was quick to respond.


Reggie Bush famously had his 2005 Heisman Trophy stripped from him after an investigation revealed that he received ‘improper benefits’ during his time at USC.

Now, Reggie wants his Heisman back.

“Over the last few months, on multiple occasions, my team and I have reached out to both the NCAA and The Heisman Trust in regard to the reinstatement of my college records and the return of my Heisman,” he said in a statement. “It is my strong belief that I won the Heisman trophy ‘solely’ due to my hard work and dedication on the football field and it is also my firm belief that my records should be reinstated.”

Reggie Bush would go on to say that he ‘never cheated’ the game of football.

Johnny Manziel, who famously profited off signing illegal autographs during his time at Texas A&M, agrees that Reggie Bush should be given his Heisman back.

The consensus by all fans and members of the media is that Reggie Bush deserves the 2005 Heisman Trophy.

It’s time for the NCAA to do the right thing.
