HAWKEYE MOMENT

When Ricky Stanzi threw the game-winning pass to Marvin McNutt in the 2009 game against Michigan State, it was HUGE! РNeil Roth

BEHIND THE DESIGN

Tom is another artist returning after ten years to Herky on Parade. He designed Rough Hewn Herky coming up out of the block in 2004, so he tried his hand at another Rough Hewn design with Herky’s new pose. Tom amazingly depicted Herky being chiseled out of stone yet again!
