Picture Of The Day: Robert Griffin III’s Superman Socks

Robert Griffin III Superman socks

Entering the 2011 NCAA Football season, Baylor quarterback Robert Griffin III was hardly considered a contender to win the Heisman Trophy.  But a Superman-like performance that saw him pass for 3998 yards and 36 touchdowns, rush for another 644 yards and 9 touchdowns, and lead the Baylor Bears to an impressive 9-3 season not only vaulted him into contention, but it also helped him bring the prestigious award back to Waco for the first time in school history.

And speaking of Superman, RG3 paid tribute to the superhero with this interesting choice of socks during Saturday’s Heisman presentation, which also featured a cape for some added warmth during these cold winter months.
