Zanesville artist Alan Cottrill said he hopes he captured the key traits of the famed Ohio State University Buckeyes coach.
“One word – intensity,” Cottrill said. “Woody’s intensity, his will to win, his single-mindedness of purpose.”
For Cottrill, the task of creating the statue proved simple.
“Those alive when he coached, I want them to smile and remember what he was like – the winning attitude, the intensity,” Cottrill said.
In a perfect world, the statue would be 100 feet tall. Also, it would breath fire.
