Rutgers Heisman Trophy candidate and All-American fullback Brian Leonard (Governeur, NY) is prominently displayed at one of the world’s most famous landmarks thanks to a video clip currently airing on the NBC Astrovision by Panasonic in New York City’s Times Square.

The video includes shots of the famous “Leonard Leap” over defenders, while concluding with a “Leonard For Heisman” slogan. The video clip airs four times each hour daily on the NBC Astrovision by Panasonic. Leonard will be featured on the video screen through the end of September. Photo: Andy Lyons/Getty Images

The state-of-the-art NBC Astrovision by Panasonic is situated high above the famous New York City landmark at One Times Square, the building famous worldwide for the New Year’s Eve ball drop. The video screen is more than 1,300 square feet in size and can be seen from several blocks away in the most densely populated areas in the world.

Fans can follow Leonard all season long and interact with the Heisman Trophy candidate on his website:
