According to TMZ, Reggie Bush is forfeiting his Heisman Trophy: Bush also takes to Twitter

TMZ says

Bush just released a statement through the New Orleans Saints in which he explains, “Each individual carries the legacy of the award and each one is entrusted with its good name … It is for these reasons that I have made the difficult decision to forfeit my title as Heisman winner of 2005.”

Bush added, “The persistent media speculation regarding allegations dating back to my years at USC has been both painful and distracting.  In no way should the storm around these allegations reflect in any way on the dignity of this award, nor on any other institutions or individuals.  Nor should it distract from outstanding performances and hard-earned achievements either in the past, present or future.”

Just want to thank everyone for their support throughout this tough time. This has been a hard decision for me today but I feel it’s right.

I hope that kids and upcoming youth can look at me and use this story as an example and learning tool. Challenges are a part of life.

But the key is to never allow your faults or mistakes to define you, yet use them as an opportunity to mature and grow to become better!

Now that this is behind me I look forward to the future and winning more awards and championships here in New Orleans! Who Dat!
