Preview of soon to be bronzed Concrete Charlie. 7'' statue to be dedicated at Franklin Field this football season. Details to follow.
In 2010, a group of Philadelphia businessmen approached the University of Pennsylvania with the aim of installing a statue of Pennís greatest all-time player and their hero, Chuck Bednarik, at Franklin Field.
The commission to create this timeless work of art will cost the University of Pennsylvania $100,000 from conception and design to construction and installation. As of February 2011, $50,000 has been raised toward this goal.
