He holds the CFL record for longest Interception Return Touchdown in a playoff game but it still sits as the second most celebrated INT in the career of Kenny Wheaton.The former Toronto Argonauts defensive back, who racked up over 400 defensive tackles during his six-year CFL career has the most celebrated play in the history of Oregon Ducks football.

An interception known simply as ‘The Pick’ continues to be honoured two decades later.  Videos, plaques, bobbleheads and the dozens of other products that pay homage the play pale in comparison to the latest celebratory item that honours the feat in its 20th year.  The now-retired DB posted this photo on his Facebook page last week and to say that this is the most aggressive move yet by Oregon fans to pay tribute is an understatement.
