Two Seattle Seahawks fans are raising funds in an effort to try to build a bronze statue outside of CenturyLink Field of cornerback Richard Sherman’s game-winning play in the last minutes of the 2014 NFC Championship Game, reports the Seattle Post-Intelligencer.
Sherman’s tip of 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick’s pass intended for Michael Crabtree ended up in the hands of Seahawks linebacker Malcolm Smith, sealing the 23-17 victory and sending Seattle to the Super Bowl.
According to the report, the project’s organizers, Joe Michaels and Chris Bauer, want the statue to be built so that fans can stand in the right place to “intercept” the pass.
More from the Seattle Post-Intelligencer:
Michaels and Bauer, who both work for Microsoft, said they have a goal of raising $250,000 for the statue via the crowdfunding website Indiegogo. Their campaign will go live on Indiegogo at 12:12 p.m. July 28; anyone will be able to contribute by going to their project’s website, BuildTheTip.com.
