Heisman Trust Demands Bush Return His Trophy

On June 7, Paul Pabst of the Dan Patrick Show first broke the news that Reggie Bush’s family had loaned his rogue Heisman Trophy to a San Diego Museum.

On June 29 I reported that according to a source close to the Bush family, the now-disgraced, ex-USC Trojan had decided not to return his personal copy of the Heisman Trophy to the Heisman Trust. The next day the president of the museum in possession of the trophy, Al Kidd of the San Diego Hall of Champions, said he had “every intention” of displaying the trophy in a public exhibit.


Kidd has since had a change of heart.

Pabst (once again) broke the news today:

According to sources, the Heisman Trust contacted both the San Diego Hall of Champions and the Bush family last week to request the return of Bush’s Heisman Trophy to its office in New York City.

On Friday, July 15, the San Diego Hall of Champions returned the 2005 Heisman Trophy to former USC running back Reggie Bush and his parents, Lamar and Denise Griffin

So now that Bush’s cover for keeping the trophy has vanished, can we expect him to voluntarily return his bronzed, albeit vacated copy of college football’s greatest honor?

Thanks to Pabst’s report today, Bush can give it back or expect the repo man.
