Who knew, Heisman Trophy’s are not allowed as carry on items on airplanes. Obviously not Troy Smith. Ohio State’s quarterback and most recent recipient of the award had no idea. Obviously, putting the Heisman in your checked luggage may not be the answer either.
Troy Smith’s Heisman Trophy was shipped home because airport security would not allow the Ohio State quarterback to take it on the plane Tuesday. Smith wore a black leather jacket with the Heisman insignia on back when he arrived at the airport from New York, where he was presented college football’s most coveted trophy. (Breitbart)
The next time any of you win the Heisman Trophy, unless you drive to NYC, make sure you stop off at UPS or FEDEX before flying home.
