Baylor To Unveil Robert Griffin III Statue Outside New Stadium

A statue of Redskins quarterback Robert Griffin III will be unveiled outside of Baylor University's new McLane Stadium when it opens Aug. 31.

Griffin starred for the Bears and won the Heisman Trophy prior to being selected by Washington with the No. 2 pick in the 2012 NFL Draft. The official pose of the 9.5-foot statue will not be revealed until next month, but Texas native Tom White, who created Griffin's likeness, traveled to Washington last April to take pictures of the quarterback.

"It's gonna be awesome," White told Fox Sports. "It's a great tribute to him and all his wonderful accomplishments."
