We are 12 Heisman Trophy winners hanging out between takes on Day 2 of a commercial shoot. Ask us anything!
Hello again, Reddit! This is Kellye from Nissan’s social media team, and I’m hanging out on-set again today with 12 Heisman Trophy winners for Day 2 of this year’s Nissan Heisman House commercial shoot for the 2013-14 college football season (see the full list below). During their down time in between takes, the Heismans will be stopping by to answer your questions. Some of the guys may type their answers themselves, others may choose to dictate them to me. Either way, we’ll sign each comment so you know who it’s from. If you missed yesterday’s AMA, check it out here: http://www.reddit.com/r/IAmA/comments/1e2q98/we_are_12_heisman_trophy_winners_hanging_out/

A little background: Nissan has been a sponsor of the Heisman Trophy since 2005 (they even give us one vote, which we let the fans decide), and this is the third year we’ve worked with ESPN to produce the Heisman House spots. Here are a few of our favorites from last season:
Alright, with that out of the way, let’s get started!
Barry SandersDesmond Howard will be the first to join us today in about 30 minutes. The schedule of today’s shoot is fluid, so I’ll be grabbing the Heismans whenever they’re free. If your question is specifically for one of the guys, go ahead and mention that. If it’s a general question, we may have a few of them respond.
