Mariota’s Heisman pose goes viral

It was a huge thrill following Oregon’s Marcus Mariota and the rest of the Duck Football Team through their history making 2014 season. Pac-12 Champions! National College Football Playoff winners! All the way to the National Championship Game!

Along the way, colleague Brian Davies made a wonderful image of Mariota that connected immediately with the public. Sensing a good story behind the viral image I put this piece together.

Let me know what you think and thanks for having a look at my site.
