Unseasonable Alabama weather prevented the United States Sports Academy’s Iron Bowl Monument from reaching its intended home until recently.

Now that the sculpture has been relocated to its permanent spot in the Academy’s Sport Sculpture Park, the next step in the process is to help make the monument the largest tribute to American football in the country.

Football fans who want to show their colors and allegiance to their favorite team or sports fans in general may purchase bricks to be placed at the monument’s base. Bricks can be dedicated to family members or former teammates, favorite coaches or friends. Bricks may be personally engraved with a message of your choice.

Bricks are $50 each and can be personally engraved (up to 18 characters per line including spaces, three lines total). Call 251-626-3303 or visit the Academy’s bookstore to place an order.
