The Goal Line Stand

     No single image represents Coach Paul W. "Bear" Bryant's defensive philosophy better than this historic play against Penn State in the 1979 Sugar Bowl.  With fourth-and-goal inside the Alabama one-yard line, Mike Guman is stopped cold by linebacker Barry Krauss and the swarming Crimson Tide defense.  The effort preserved the 14-7 victory for Alabama and clinched its tenth national title, the fifth under Coach Bryant.  The Goal Line Stand was the artist's first of his many popular Alabama football paintings.
