John Heisman Hand-Drawn "Statue of Liberty" Play

John Heisman Hand-Drawn "Statue of Liberty" Play

Perhaps the most widely-known trick play in American football, the Statue of Liberty is so-named due to the quarterback's arm position as he pump-fakes down the field before dropping the ball from over his head to a running back or wide receiver in motion behind him. Invented by John Heisman, the famous play was "drawn up" from his very own archives and this hand-drawing on stationery from Houston's Finest Apartment Hotel is labeled at the top "Statue." Another play is drawn on the back of this sheet. Writing is 8/10 while the 6" x 7" sheet of paper has folds but no tears. John Heisman, for whom the famous trophy annually honoring the top college player is named, coached 35 years at the college level and led Georgia Tech to the national championship in 1917.
