When you think of New Orleans you think of over-the-top, eccentric, fun times.

Given that, those behind the R+L Carriers New Orleans Bowl wanted to reflect such in the MVP award. The end result did just that.

Scheduled to take place on December 20th, the Louisiana–Lafayette Ragin’ Cajuns will take on the Nevada Wolfpack with the best player of the game bringing this beauty home:

For a football player, what better way to comemorate your accomplishments in a huge game with nothing other than a helmet?

While there’s obviously nothing wrong with the standard trophies or pieces of crystal we often see, this is more a work of art and even if you’re not feeling the design you have to admit it’s a pretty cool way to give out a trophy.

Making it even better is that the trophy features both the Ragin’ Cajuns and Wolfpack logos, so it’s something that would need to be created specially every year assuming the tradition is to continue past this current New Orleans Bowl.

There are a few bowl games across the country which present trophies (be it to the team or player) which do incorporate the local heritage, but none that compare to this. Not only does it incorporate the Big Easy lifestyle, but also combines it with an actual piece of football equipment.

A great keepsake for whichever player brings it home this weekend.
