R.S. Owens Completes the 2015 NFL Bart Starr Award
Chicago-based R.S. Owens & Co. completed this year's NFL Bart Starr Award.
Named for NFL Hall of Fame player and MVP of Super Bowl I and II, the Athletes in Action/Bart Starr Award recognizes the NFL player who best exemplifies outstanding leadership on and off the field. Current players vote for the recipient, who will be announced at the annual Super Bowl breakfast.
The award depicts Starr standing beside two aspiring athletes cast in metal with an antique bronze finish. Each figure is cast separately in two or more parts and then soldered together. After polishing and plating athletes in a bronze finish, a final antiquing process brings out the fine details. The figure then is mounted to a solid American walnut base where the recipient's information will be added once the ballots are tallied.
R.S. Owens also is behind various other awards including The Oscar, Emmy, American Idol, Indy Grand Prix Cup, CMA Lifetime Achievement Award, Cotton Bowl, NASCAR Pepsi Max 400, Rock & Roll Hall of Fame Award and more.
