The petition is starting to take off.
An Oklahoma student named Seth Truitt has set up a petition on Change.org that says when Baker Mayfield wins the Heisman and subsequently gets his own statue, the statue should be of Mayfield planting the flag like he did versus Ohio State in the Sooners’ 31-16 win.
Check it out:
Mayfield is undoubtedly the favorite to win the Heisman this year, and if he does win, that statue almost certainly has to be a of his iconic flag plant. It would be a shame not to immortalize such a cool moment.
Hopefully the petition garners the necessary signatures (it looks like it will) and the Oklahoma administration takes it seriously.
The petition currently has 4,331 signatures.
