Obama presented the trophy during a ceremony Monday in the White House East Room. Air Force defensive star Jon Davis gave Obama a team jersey and the game ball from Air Force's victory over the Naval Academy.

Davis told Obama: "You're the man," and asked him to strike a "Heisman pose." Obama obliged, getting into a slight running crouch and extending his arm as cameras flashed wildly.

The trophy goes to the winner of a three-way season series between the major service academies. The Falcons defeated the Army and Navy teams during the last two seasons.
