Red Towel Sculpture Project Detail

WKU Spirit / Red Towel Sculpture

♦The Red Towel Sculpture

A Source of Pride, A Statement of Loyalty, A Commitment to Excellence, The Symbol of the WKU Spirit.

The inscription on the granite base says it all. The Red Towel sculpture was created in 2010 by Russ Faxon, and with it has begun a new tradition with the WKU football team. In 2005, Coach E.A. Diddle was depicted by Faxon waving a red towel for the sculpture that stands in front of Diddle Arena. The Red Towel at Feix Field is a full-scale replica of Coach Diddle's red towel. Student athletes touch the sculpture for solidarity as they enter the field prior to the opening kickoff.
