A photograph of Philadelphia Eagles quarterback Nick Foles and his daughter Lily in the afterglow of a Super Bowl win is headed to the Hall of Fame.

Foles, as you may recall, led the Eagles to am unexpected victory over the New England Patriots back in February, and as the confetti fell, the Super Bowl MVP held up his tiny daughter, wearing pink headphones. Getty Images photographer Rob Carr caught the perfect moment between the two, and as a result, his photo won the Dave Boss Award of Excellence in the 50th Annual Pro Football Hall of Fame Photo Contest.

Carr’s photo will hang at the Hall of Fame as part of this summer’s enshrinement ceremonies. Patriots fans might not care for the photo, but it’s a winner all the same.
