Georgia National College Football Home Championship Trophy

The National College Football Championship trophy is now in its rightful home in Athens, Georgia.

While it hasn’t appeared on your social media timeline yet, some Georgia Bulldog fans already have a personal and up-close glimpse of the coveted award that comes with being National College Football Champions.

After sealing the national championship with a kiss, the prized trophy was on display in Athens on Wednesday for all to see.

“[I] came here to take a photo with the trophy, ”said UGA fan Marquis Gresham.

Gresham was among a long line of fans at Walmart on Lexington Road taking a photo with the trophy that cemented the history of the Dawgs.

“Our first year at UGA as a freshman was a great welcome on campus. We wanted to come celebrate and take pictures of this historic moment,” said Sarah Ellen Mercer.

“Literally my whole life it’s like a dream come true that the Dawgs won. I just couldn’t come and see the trophy,” said Summer Jones, senior at UGA.

“We literally got here an hour before to queue, it was great, super exciting,” said Caroline Heathcock, UGA senior.

A unique opportunity to document a moment that we have all been waiting for for 41 years, but I hope not the last.

“Year after year we’ve watched, and they’ve been so close and this year they finally did. They finally became champions. And that we beat Alabama, that’s the best part of it all,” Jones said.

“Yes! It’s like the icing on the cake,” said Heathcock.
