8.5" x 11" Pen and Prismacolor Pencil on Paper - Sketch

I never knew Dan Marino's middle name was Constantine, did you? Marino wore number 13 for the Pitt Panthers. He is probably more famous for his pro career but he is also a member of the College Football Hall of Fame. I remember him most for throwing a TD pass on 4th and 5 with :42 seconds left to beat Georgia in the 1982 Sugar Bowl. Georgia blitzed and left Mike Kelley one on one with Pitt's best receiver. Pittsburgh picked up the blitz and Marino hit John Brown right down the middle of the field for a 33 yard TD to win the game. That was a long ride back from New Orleans.

This quick sketch is done in ballpoint pen and topped off with a little prismacolor pencil.
