Football Art - Linebacker - Charcoal Drawing

Preliminary drawing for a large painting that you can see further down on this blog. The drawing is 24" x 18" charcoal on paper.. Number 66 linebacker. I am not sure who this drawing represents. Three good ones come to mind. Clyde Turner (Chicago Bears ,Ray Nitschke (Green Bay Packers) or Billy Shaw (Buffalo Bills). In the end I prefer Ray Nitschke of the Green Bay Packers. That is because I spent a couple of weeks in Green Bay in the early 60’s and went to the daily workouts on Lambeau Field. At the time they allowed the public to sit right on the bench with the players during workout. It was fun to be so "up close and personal" with the players.
