Penn State has had the ability to bring in star running backs. From Hall of Famer Franco Harris to modern day star Saquon Barkley, the Nittany Lions have produced some of the best backs in football history. Included in the best running backs category is Larry Johnson, whose 2002 season was one of the best in the storied history of Penn State football. Johnson rushed for 2,087 yards on 271 carries, a whopping 7.7 yard per carry and scored 23 total touchdowns – 20 of them via the ground. Johnson’s monster season earned him a slew of national awards in 2002, including the Walter Camp Award, Maxwell Award and the Doak Walker Award and he finished second for the Heisman Trophy and was a unanimous selection for the All-American Team.

This is the very Doak Walker Award that was presented to Larry Johnson for his outstanding 2002 season. The Doak Walker Award is presented annually to the best running back in the country and was named after Doak Walker, who was a standout halfback for SMU and later the Detroit Lions. Johnson received this statue that features a bronze running back captured in motion standing on a 5 x 8-inch bronze grounding. The bronze statue is mounted on a 7 ½ x 10-inch wood base. The football player is facing the narrow end of the wood base and a black plate mounted on a gold plate on the 7 ½-inch end has printed in gold “DOAK WALKER AWARD 2002 NATIONAL RUNNING BACK AWARD Larry Johnson PENNSYLVANIA STATE UNVERSITY”.  This trophy is in excellent condition and is a wonderful opportunity to possess a prestigious award given to a player that had one of the great seasons in Penn State history. This comes with a signed LOA from Larry Johnson.
