Former Purdue student Tyler Trent has become one of the premier stories of the college football season thus far and took centerstage in the Boilmakers' 49-20 victory over Ohio State on Oct. 21. Trent, who is currently battling bone cancer, received a game ball from Purdue head coach Jeff Brohm postgame after declaring the Boilmakers would pull off the upset hours earlier on ESPN.
Trent's newfound popularity has led to a bobblehead created in his honor, according to ESPN's Darren Rovell. A portion of the proceeds will go toward cancer research.
"This is one of those bobbleheads that I think will resonate with so many people beyond just the Purdue community," Hall of Fame Bobblehead Museum founder Phil Sklar told Rovell.
Bobblehead replicas of Trent cost $30 and can be found here.
