Derrick Henry Receives Nissan Titan

The Tennessee Titans’ new running back, Derrick Henry, received a brand new Nissan Titan this past month. This prize is part of his induction into the Nissan Heisman House, Nissan’s fraternity for Heisman Trophy winners. The Heisman Memorial Trophy annually recognizes the outstanding college football player whose performance best exhibits the pursuit of excellence with integrity. Winners are the perfect combination of great ability, diligence, perseverance, and hard work. Derrick exemplified these characteristics and traits while playing for Alabama University. With his new status, Henry chose to receive a 2016 Nissan TITAN® XD Platinum Reserve edition with the Endurance® V8 engine. This truck is assembled by Nissan’s manufacturing plant in Canton, Mississippi, and the engine is assembled in Decherd, Tennessee. Derrick was inducted at Nissan North America headquarters in Franklin, TN, about 15 miles south of the Nissan Stadium. Derrick is the second Tennessee Titan to receive this honor; last year, Marcus Mariota was the honoree. We would like to extend a warm welcome to Derrick for becoming both a Tennessee Titan and a member of the Nissan family.

Nissan’s Heisman House is entering its sixth year. Its media campaign features a series of video vignettes. It also has a traveling college campus/stadium tour and social media elements; these include the opportunity for fans to vote online for their favorite Heisman Trophy candidates.

Nissan’s relationship with the Heisman Trophy Trust began in 2006. Nissan supports the Trust’s charitable activities and mission of service to our youth, especially those disadvantaged or afflicted.
