Honoring Jonathan Taylor and Rocky Bleier, February 21, 2020

The Trophy

The award recipient receives a stunning action sculpture of Doak Walker, cast in bronze and mounted on a wooden base.

It was created by renowned artist J. Blair Buswell of Provo, Utah, a former running back at Brigham Young University who has sculpted the busts of more than a dozen inductees in the Pro Football Hall of Fame.

Buswell designed the nine-foot sculpture in Doak Walker Plaza at the northeast corner of Gerald J. Ford Stadium on the campus of SMU.
