Interview with ‘Heisman trophy girl’

An LSU grad who dressed up as the Heisman trophy has gone viral, garnering the attention of thousands.

Madison Lukas recently graduated from LSU in May. When she heard LSU’s quarterback, Joe Burrow, may be a finalist for the Heisman she thought what better way to honor him than by dressing up as the trophy.

“I can’t think of anyone else who deserves it more,” she said. “If Joe goes on to win this Heisman I think it’s going to be truly incredible.”

Lukas’ roommate took photos of her in the costume around campus. She says she never thought her pictures would gain the attention of thousands.

“It’s not what I expected,” she said. “I was like, ‘yeah this would be funny’ and the likes kept coming.”

Now that Burrow has officially been named a Heisman finalist and the Tigers won the SEC Championship, Lukas says her costume isn’t going anywhere.

“I plan to be in this suit on January 13 in New Orleans, so I’m hoping for a big win from the team,” she said.

The Heisman trophy presentation will be held in New York this Saturday.
